VIRWC teams work on the ground consistently bringing women together through different programs such as Women Circles, Multicultural Playgroups, and Global Kitchen activities. They organize weekly and annual events and deliver their unique training in health, respectful relationships, cultural awareness leadership, and employment pathways. These programs increase women’s skill to build changes and accomplish what they want and deserve in their lives.
VIRWC exist to provide a better space for multicultural women and for that, everyone must work, talk, learn and be visible together.
