2023-24 Charity Partner Announcement

Kelowna Women in Business is excited to announce Project Literacy Central Okanagan Society as our official charity partner for the 2023/24 season.

KWIB is committed to making a positive impact in the local community and has chosen Project Literacy as our charity partner because of the vital work they do providing literacy support and educational resources to local adults, refugees, immigrant families, children and seniors. Through various fundraising initiatives, volunteer efforts and awareness campaigns, we aim to support Project Literacy’s mission to provide volunteer-based services to improve the quality of life in our community.

“We are thrilled to partner with Project Literacy Kelowna this season,” comments KWIB President Danica Dutt, “Their dedication to improving literacy in our community aligns perfectly with our values of empowering and uplifting individuals. We look forward to working closely with them to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those they serve.”

Project Literacy offers a range of programs and services, including one-on-one tutoring, family literacy programs and digital literacy workshops. Their work extends beyond just teaching people to read and write; it creates a ripple effect that enhances overall well-being, employability and community engagement.

“We are deeply honored to be chosen as the charity partner by Kelowna Women in Business,” says Paul Zuurbier, Executive Director of Project Literacy. “This partnership will enable us to reach even more individuals who are in need of literacy support and expand our programs to make a lasting impact. We are excited about the positive change we can create together.”
