SHEWISE Breaking Barriers For BAME Women
Empowering and investing in women and young girls is part of the global solution for us all, now and in the future.
They talk about a glass ceiling for women. I talk about Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority women facing a double-glazed, triple glazed, black glass ceiling which is even more difficult to break through.
“Those in positions of power need to do more to break down barriers for Black, Asian and Ethnic
Minority Women,” Chwarae Teg
Empowering Women Economically through Skills and Workforce Development
Urgent Support Needed
90% of Charities have been hard hit due to the Pandemic.
We face a huge battle in continuing to provide our support services to women facing multiple challenges in their daily lives.
We urgently need your help. Without your generous donations, we can not provide our one-to-one support services to women and girls. Please help us to help them.
A donation of £10 per month or just a one-time donation can change a woman's life.
Without regular funding, the work cannot continue.
We help marginalized vulnerable women to recognize their potential and give them the opportunities to lead a life of financial independence and dignity.
For many ethnic minority women language, cultural barriers, and social isolation prevent them from accessing skills to further their careers.
Our bilingual one-to-one, face to face and online training is a gateway for women to be self-sufficient.
By simply sponsoring a woman to attend our income generation programme, you will help a woman to develop the necessary skills she needs to exit the cycle of poverty.
Statically ethnic women workforce is largely unskilled. Skills development is a key to improving employability and income-earning opportunities for women as it is the bridge between job, workforce, and prosperity
Giving access to skills development training and capital for income generation activities enables them to better support their families and grants them a greater degree of autonomy in their lives.
Our training programmes enhance the livelihood opportunities for women who are in a disadvantageous position and have limited exposure to technical skills and knowledge.
