She Matters Too is the next step in CBM’s campaign for gender equity, to educate, equip and empower girls and women who have the potential to be the greatest influencers for change in their families and communities.
To-date, nearly 80 Canadian Baptist churches across the country have joined She Matters Too and over $71,000 has already been raised.
Funds and awareness raised in this year’s campaign will support important initiatives such as:
- Small business grants and loans, business training, health care, and emotional & spiritual support for HIV-positive women
- Skills training, small business creation, and savings and credit opportunities through Self-Help Groups among refugee women in Kenya
- Support for other CBM programs which seek to educate, equip, and empower some of the world’s most marginalized women
