Our Approach

We catalyse relations between women, from North to South and South to North through an ecological and social entrepreneurship approach. We educate, we train, we communicate, we support, and we participate in collective action that brings structural change.              

Cafépreneur

These informal meetings take place in Montreal twice a month for entrepreneurs to discuss issues that affect women in social entrepreneurship. Discover the opportunities to meet & mingle with entrepreneurs around a cup of fair trade coffee.

Support Us

The work we do is made possible by generous donors, like you. With every donation you are empowering women artisans, home and abroad, with the tools they need to become self-sufficient and contribute to their communities in a way that is social, ecological and ethical.

FEM International evolved from a personal quest, a realization of self-awareness and the connection with the world we live in. It was born out of strong passion, channelled through an extraordinary international volunteer venture and made possible by the continuous support of those who believe we can do something better together rather than alone. 

Today the story continues to evolve, written by the incredible women we meet and work with who devote their time, passion and expertise to make the world a better place for all women.
