We might be small, but we are very POWERFUL when it comes to saving and healing lives!
Hello and welcome to our Blog here at The Women’s Mentoring Foundation, a registered charitable organisation that helps Women heal from hurt, distress, grief and trauma experienced in their life. We support Women in building their Self-leadership through increasing Confidence, focus, and better mental, emotional, and social health. We do this with the aid of our GriefShare, Hurting from Healing, Self-Development, and Leadership programs, Speaking engagements, Therapies and various events held throughout the year.
On the 4th of April we had our Creating Pathways to Employment for Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Communities, a COMPLIMENTARY workshop, where we explored opportunities to create pathways to employment and further education opportunities for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) migrants through grief and trauma coaching, professional skills development for employment, and career networking and mentorship.
The attendees learnt about the following:
- Find their inner confidence, natural learning skills and desires to work;
- Learning to share the same value add with other friends and families;
- Form a comprehensive understanding of the health and wellbeing that requires attention to the economic and social issues affecting their lives; and
- Health and wellbeing is not merely the absence of disease, but results from complex interactions between biological, psychological, social, economic and cultural factors.
This event has been brought together with the support of the Lord Mayor’s Better Suburbs Grants – Community Support.
With so much bad news in the world today, from global disasters to crisis pandemics, sometimes it’s good to be reminded that not everything out there is terrible. In fact, there’s a lot going on across the globe and country which is genuinely great – but receives little attention.
Smaller charities are the heart of communities across Australia and during the pandemic and continuous lockdowns, it was smaller charities that used their networks and reach to support people in their communities that were cut off, isolated, or at risk. They keep the country moving and should be applauded for everything they do.
We see small charities as an excellent source of insight for the wider sector. Sure, they might not have the big teams or big budgets to do all the flashy digital things but there are plenty of ways they’re amazing at the fundraising fundamentals.
In our weekly Blogs and the WMF Monthly Roundup and Weekly Update newsletters, we will share effective value add tools and resources that will truly make a difference in the quality of your life.
