Since 2011, Saturviit has made available up to $3,000 for each Nunavik community, including Inuit communities in southern Quebec, for actions that make women’s lives better. Projects can be for activities that raise awareness, that promote equality between men and women, that encourage healthy life styles, or other positive actions.
Nunavik women and girls have initiated and participated in many workshops that have been supported by Saturviit. Activities have promoted intergenerational activities such as sewing workshops to learn beading and making sealskins kamiiks, and youth camps and exchanges that support discussions about bullying, suicide prevention, and building healthy relationships.
Saturviit encourages women to develop new projects, events, and workshops that support the wellbeing of women, girls, and communities.
