The Johansen-Larsen Foundation Continues its Support

The Johansen-Larsen Foundation announced that it will grant iSisters $10,000 to ensure that it continues to deliver its existing, core foundational programs to current and future learners.

To be able to offer these programs in a continuous stream at iSisters’ various partner centres is vital to the women we serve. 

Our technology programs are essential to helping the most vulnerable women get the skills they need to move forward with their lives, to reaching those that would otherwise have no other way of obtaining these services, and to equip our partner centres with the best training to ensure sustainability.

iSisters is thrilled to receive this grant from the Johansen-Larsen Foundation, supporting iSisters since 2013.

The Johansen-Larsen Foundations’ mission is to support educational initiatives that improve the lives of marginalized children, youth and animals at risk.
