Seeking Life (Chache Lavi)

Chache Lavi, a social program, is designed to promote reintegration and social strengthening via a comprehensive and sustainable full-circle approach. It fosters an entrepreneurial spirit, encourages self-elevation, promotes positive self-patterns, and consolidates community development through stimulating collective participation and a sense of initiative.

Having succeeded in Haiti, the program is now being extended to empower marginalized women in Montreal, providing technical and financial tools to help them reach their full potential and increase earnings. The program also mentors beneficiaries facing trauma or mental abuse with the goal of achieving significant transformation and self- sustenance, enabling them to contribute to the well-being of their families and communities.

Family Counselling Sessions

The family counselling session is an essential part of our Seeking Life training program, as it helps to address any underlying issues that may be contributing to the women’s trauma and violence.
Individual Counselling Sessions

Each participant will have one individual counselling session with a qualified therapist during the 10-day program. The timing of these sessions will be determined based on the availability of the therapist and participant. During these sessions, the therapist will provide personalized support to help each participant address their specific needs and concerns.
