PROGRAMS > Community Services Network >Sesheme Foundation
Formed in 2012, Sesheme is deeply rooted in family and community values. When Mrs. Victoria Sesheme Okine came to Canada from Ghana, West Africa, in the '70s, she brought along her African values of community, family unity, inclusiveness, and hard work. She instilled these values in her children and openly shared them with her Canadian community.
We carry on her legacy of building strong black families through the economic and personal development of black women, connecting women and families to needed community resources, and giving hope to many facing challenging circumstances and social isolation.
We will achieve this by offering programs addressing the many issues black women face that limit their economic elevation.
