This competition is part of SAWAC’s Generations of Change project.
SAWAC works with women in the Scarborough-area to come up with creative strategies to end systemic and domestic violence against women. SAWAC`s first project, Generations of Change is a three-year project, funded by the City of Toronto, aimed at mobilizing young South Asian women to become leaders in the struggle against violence against women in their communities.
