Women of Action
Discover our partners and their programs through testimonials from participants. This year, we are presenting strong and inspiring women from all over the world.
For Lent 2017, Development and Peace – Caritas Canada has chosen to put women at the forefront to highlight the very special importance and role they have in every aspect of development, whether it be social, environmental or economic.
This Lent, act in solidarity with and walk alongside the women and men who advocate for an equal and inclusive society, one in which women can participate hand-in-hand with men in building the world of tomorrow.
Which woman inspires you?
Use our online form to send us a picture of an inspiring woman and a brief description explaining how she inspires you.
This Lent, Development and Peace will be joining its voice to that of Pope Francis, who in his video message of May 3rd, 2016, invited us to pray with him "that in all countries of the world, women may be honoured, respected and valued for their essential contribution to society."
