Vision Statement
The Women's Own Resource Centre's Vision
is to provide women with opportunities to achieve success.

Our Objectives

  1. To promote women’s access to resources
    and opportunities
  2. To promote and celebrate women’s successes
  3. To support women in becoming economically independent through creating sustainable livelihoods.
  4. To assist with self-reliance, raise self-esteem and a positive self-concept.

A Sustainable Livelihood

A livelihood is much more than a job or
income generating activity. Women’s livelihoods include the resources and supports to move beyond basic income generation towards increased economic resiliency.

When a woman has the skills, knowledge
and confidence to find new work, as well
as a reserve of resources and broad support networks, she has developed a livelihood
for herself.
