I Am Powerful Councils
I Am Powerful Councils are groups of influential individuals (mainly women) who come together in cities across Canada to raise awareness and funds for CARE's work in lifting women and girls out of poverty. Members inspire others in their communities to help CARE empower women and girls in the developing world. This movement started in Montréal in 2011 and councils are now forming in cities across the country. Each I Am Powerful council is unique because all members joining them are unique. Their common thread? Engaged and passionate people willing to make a difference in the world.
