We aim to reduce the
issues around parenting
difficulties and struggles.
This will reduce dependency on
welfare services and assist young
women to find satisfaction and
strength in their parenting.
To support women under
26 who have at least one
child or are pregnant.
Many of these women need support
and assistance on their life journey.
WHY WE EXIST?
The Empowerment Challenge is a not-for-profit charity which has been set up by a small group of local Geelong women. We have first hand knowledge in being parents and understand the challenges faced and the complexities when barriers pop up along the way.
