Workforce Development

The biggest challenge facing East African women in Minnesota is unemployment. Unless we prepare young women of African descent for work, they will be left out.


We help immigrant women and families to navigate the health care system, connect them with social services and health care, and link them to MN doctors...

Women Empowerment

When women are empowered, the whole community reaps the benefits. We offer courses and exercises that helps improve the literacy rate, and promotes economic independence.
