SAVIS of Halton is thrilled to announce they have been selected to receive a multi-year grant from the Canadian Women’s Foundation in support of their work to create eLearning curriculum for all Grade 9 students in the Halton District School Board.

This funding will help support SAVIS of Halton in their goal to promote positive community change through education and end violence against women. The “Be the Change” project will develop eLearning curriculum about healthy relationships, consent, and the media’s representation of relationships.

SAVIS is so grateful to the Canadian Women’s Foundation, and their partners, for this much needed funding. This educational program will eventually reach all Grade 9 students in the public school board. The hope is to share this curriculum with others school boards and anti-violence agencies in the future.

“The Canadian Women’s Foundation is thrilled to be able to support the incredible work being done in the community by SAVIS of Halton,” said Anu Dugal, Director of Violence Prevention at the Canadian Women’s Foundation. “This year, we are thrilled to have provided 17 multi-year grants in the area of teen violence prevention to organizations across Canada. These grants help educate young women and men about healthy relationships and how to recognize the signs of abuse.”
