WE Project



We acknowledgee the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia for the WE: Project.

All WE: Project classes are open to past and current clients of SOWINS.

What is the WE: Project?

  • The focus of the WE: Project is to encourage healthy lifestyle choices, increase self-esteem, and to promote personal independence and community connection.
  • The WE: Project brings together community members who share their life skills, passions, and healthy/ holistic living with the women and families that SOWINS’ serves.
  • WE: Project classes include arts & crafts, yoga, meditation, cooking, sewing, reiki, angel cards, and more.
  • Artists and crafters from the WE: Project also sell handmade items at various local market.
  • Proceeds from market sales go directly to the artisans with a small commission to SOWINS to help fund future WE: Project classes.
