Toolkit to Strengthen Listeners

In February 2021, the Amal Center for Women launched a toolkit designed to educate our informal communities on how to respond to women who have approached them with their experiences of domestic violence.

Islamic Relief Canada workshops

Since the beginning of the year, so much has changed, but we were proud to have contributed to one positive element of 2020…our workshop series, “Community Change Starts With Me!”

Between January and July, in collaboration with Islamic Relief Canada, this series benefitted over 500 Amal clients and members of our community.  Along with the themes of healthy habits for women from ethnocultural minorities, addressing family mental health, assisting victims of domestic violence, and more, attendees had engaging conversations and built new bonds while learning!

We would like to thank all those who participated so enthusiastically in this workshop series, and the dynamic women who shared their expertise with Amal’s clients in our community!
