Project: Jewelry Program
Organization: The Gathering Place
Working with the Gathering Place officials, the FIG Fund established a jewelry-making program for the female guests of The Gathering Place. The Gathering Place is a service centre committed to building community, promoting equality and providing nourishment. The goal of the jewelry-making program is to build the skills and confidence of female clients. It is a place to be creative and social, all while learning new skills and creating jewelry. For many of the program members, jewelry-making has become an at-home hobby as well.
