GOOD TO BE GOOD, a grassroots non-profit org, will provide Empowerment Care Packs (ECP) to diverse women, girls, and trans women, particularly Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, who have experienced gender-based violence, structural poverty and marginalization. Each ECP includes healthy food boxes, cash supplements, menstrual items, personal aid, new family products, a note of positive affirmation, community-based intersectional resources for economic supports, and additional services.
Gender inequality is one of the greatest threats to lasting peace and sustainable development, having tremendous costs to communities and societies. Marginalized and low-income women & girls are at heightened risks of gender-based violence, economic instability, and deeper poverty levels, and these long-standing inequities unevenly affect them. For many women, freedom, security, and safety aren't the first options. The need for community care and gender empowerment is more significant than ever.
GOOD TO BE GOOD Empowering Care Packs will provide essential and restorative support for women and their dependents who have experienced the effects of gender-based violence, structural poverty, marginalization, social isolation. Your contribution will help ensure advocacy and barrier-free access to supports tailored to women at-risk who need to sustain their lives during the pandemic while providing the conditions for meaningful pathways to economic autonomy, wellness, and personal agency.
This program aims to empower made-vulnerable women to build thriving livelihoods through healing, enhancing care and uplift their voices and lived experiences in communities. We see profound value in supporting women to access their human rights: the right to safety, protection, food, adequate shelter, healthcare, and enabling their development and capacity to exercise power and transformation for themselves. To empower women means a lasting investment in their future--and the whole ecosystem!
