IWEN's mission is to provide educational opportunities and sustainable life skills to marginalized women and children.
To provide for the advancement of education and educational opportunities for people living in poverty in Canada and abroad, by increasing relevant knowledge, abilities and life skills of individuals and family members, with a focus on helping girls and women when doing so.
Education is a right. IWEN is fulfilling its duties under the United Nation's Universal Charter of Human Rights as a responsible "world citizen" in providing educational scholarships and livelihood opportunities to females living in poverty.
Everyone, females included, is capable of changing his or her life for the better if given an opportunity.
Women are equal to men and should have all and enjoy the same rights as men. Gender equality is achieved only by working with both genders.
Education for females not only promotes a better life for women but also facilitates the development of the whole family.
Education promotes personal and social responsibility of all family members.
Education provides choices and options in life.
Livelihood opportunities in a family sustain educational goals.
