Empowering Community Through Working Together
Neemu-Egwah Inc. is a Winnipeg-based non-profit organization working with children in care and their foster parents, low-income families, newcomers as well as agencies and companies seeking to make contributions to the community and create relationships with the knowledge keepers in Aboriginal communities. We provide culture-focused programming and services on a multicultural level to help engage the community, build strong identities and bring the right people together to bring about positive change for individuals and the community as a whole.
“Neemu-Egwah”, loosely translated from the Oji-Cree language means “to bring the right energy and people together and move forward in a good way.” The elder who gave the name believes in ‘inclusion’ and dreams to see a day when Aboriginal people live within their culture, and that all people can find their great purpose along with their spirit. We believe that when the right kind of people come together, we can drive forward motions of inclusion, building bridges that foster understanding, acceptance and relationship building.
