To expand the reach of this important initiative, the Treaty Commission is partnering with the Minerva Foundation on a new program, Combining Our Strength, intended to build capacity and empowerment within the aboriginal women's community in BC. As part of the program, Our Sacred Strength will be used to enhance leadership development for aboriginal girls and women across BC and raise awareness of the challenges they face.
The partnership project will also see Talking Circles convened in five regions of the province. Minerva-trained facilitators will organize the Talking Circles, convene the event, and screen the Treaty Commission DVD Our Sacred Strength.
The Minerva Foundation aims to inspire and empower women and girls to reach their full potential by creating opportunities and offering programs in the areas of education, leadership development, economic security and safety.
