FUTURE BLACK FEMALE
Where Black women increase access to opportunities for Black female youth.
Through strong networks, skills advancement programs, and rights-based advocacy, Future Black Female (FBF) creates access across Canada and the globe to social, political and economic opportunities for Black girls and young women (16-22 years).
The well-being of Black female youth is our motivation.
To achieve our vision of a community-empowered Black female population, FBF relies on three pillars of community engagement:
Developing and initiating solution-focused strategies.
Establishing a network for action.
Ongoing support of established efforts within the community.
INTRODUCING THE UDADA PROJECT
Empowering Black Girls' Mental Health
Welcome to the Udada Project, an inspiring initiative by Future Black Female that's all about championing the mental well-being of Black girls and women across Canada. Udada, which means "sisterhood" in Swahili, is more than just a project—it's a movement. We're here to address the gaps in mental health services and to empower Black female youth to lead happier, healthier lives. We understand that every journey is distinct, and that's why our approach is designed to resonate with the diverse needs of our community. At the heart of this endeavour is the firm belief that every individual deserves access to mental health support tailored to their unique experiences.
