The Outreach Opportunities Fund will be collecting for a First Nations organisation, Warriors Against Violence Society (WAVS), from October until January. WAVS has been in operation since 1998 with the aim of reducing violence against women by helping men learn how to make positive changes in their lives. The program provides the opportunity for participants to share their stories and obtain support, and reclaim traditional values of equality, honour and respect for themselves and others.
WAVS provides counselling and support services, health promotion programs and culturally sensitive education and training. Groups meet twice a week at Kiwassa Neighbourhood House.
