Manitoba Moon Voices ASETS (Aboriginal Skills & Employment Strategy) program helps Indigenous women and gender diverse people to fully participate in economic opportunities. Education and skills training can help Indigenous women and gender diverse people achieve economic success. Empowered Indigenous women are the foundation for strong families and communities.
MMVI (Manitoba Moon Voices Inc.) in partnership with NWAC (Native Women’s Association of Canada) is able to provide funding on a case by case basis which may include supports such as tuition, living allowance, child care, job starts and other resources that can help Indigenous women and gender diverse people reach their employment and skills training goals.
