RISE

empowerment workshops

RISE workshops are fun, empowering activities that give ethnic minority girls opportunities to play, learn and thrive together in a safe environment. Workshops are free to attend, and hosted by a mentor who can put the course information into cultural and social context. They are non-religious and tailored to be relevant and respectful to her culture. Topics from art to self defense, all aimed at building girls confidence, critical thinking, and leadership skills.  

 

Last year we held 48 RISE workshops including:

  • Women’s Health and Understanding of Disease Transmission
  • Human and Migrant Worker’s Rights
  • Art Therapy & Dance
  • Media Literacy
  • Warning Signs and Dangers of Trafficking
  • Gender Equality
  • Self Defense
  • Photography
