Here’s how it works:

About iSisters and OCH Community Foundation Project

We will deliver programs over a period of two (2) years to an estimated 120 women. OCHF’s Britannia Woods Community House will work with the leadership of iSisters to deliver computer and technology education and training for women and youth in the first year.

iSisters will facilitate expansion of our current technology learning programs and enhance the capacity and impact of OCHF to deliver learning to female residents long-term.
