Partnership Success Story

December 01, 2006

Madbakh, formerly the Somali Canadian Women's Association, received an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant of $58,300 to develop its community kitchen at 49 Mabelle Avenue in Etobicoke-Lake Shore CHU 07.

Said Halima Saad, Executive Director of Madbakh, "I want to thank Toronto Community Housing for providing us with the kitchen for our program and for all of their support."

The community kitchen initiative will offer new interactive and educational workshops, help reduce social isolation and help Somali women build capacity and discover volunteer leadership opportunities. Childcare services and youth programs are also being offered.
