EMPOWERING GIRLS AND WOMEN
Candle Light Foundation Canada (CLF Canada) is a not-for profit organisation dedicated to empowering girls and women.
Why Empowering Girls?
Empowering girls in Africa through education opportunities is not only a moral imperative but also a pathway to sustainable development, gender equality, and a brighter future for the entire continent.
Across Africa, girls face numerous challenges that hinder their access to quality education, including cultural norms, economic disparities, and infrastructure limitations. However, when girls are given the chance to learn and thrive, the benefits are profound and far-reaching.
MENSTRUAL HYGIENE MANAGEMENT AND SANITATION
In partnership with Rotary International, ROHSSEL, founded in 2020, empowers African girls through menstrual hygiene education and environmentally friendly, reusable sanitary pads called "EnviroPADS." This collaborative effort ensures girls stay in school and thrive.
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION EDUCATION
Clean water is a lifeline for girls in Africa, ensuring their health and enabling them to thrive.
Access to clean water promotes well-being, supports education, and drives economic progress. Investing in clean water infrastructure is crucial for the empowerment and future success of girls across the continent.
COVID 19 RESPONSE IN BC
During the COVID period, the distribution of care packages to girls, women, and their families in BC, Canada, was a vital act of support. These packages provided essential supplies and comfort, helping them navigate the challenges of the pandemic. Such initiatives strengthened the community, fostered resilience, and demonstrated the importance of unity during difficult times.
