Women’s Programming

Supporting women and girls achieve greatness, and addressing barriers in a holistic, supportive, and culturally-relevant way.

Our women’s programming is focused on addressing the issues women experience, and creating spaces for them to feel empowered, loved, supported, and motivated to create change in their lives .

Creating spaces where you belong…

Queen’s Unite, one of the many groups operating at Ifarada: Centre for Excellence, is a space to celebrate being a woman, mother and role model. This group is meant to be a space in which we as women can share our own experiences and learn from each other. Throughout the pandemic the reality of “connection” has changed and through this space we hope to explore how this change looks like and how it will propel us going forward. As a group we will join together and support each other by exploring our shared similarities and differences. Through in-depth discussions, interactive activities, self-reflecting we will learn to acknowledge, build and continue to grow our resiliency.
