Project helps women

A local project has helped educate more than 13,000 disadvantaged women.

Strathfoyle Women’s Centre is involved in a major ‘Live and Learn’ five year project set up to provide adult learning for women in disadvantaged areas across Northern Ireland.

Deirdre O’Hara, Educational Co-ordinator at Strathfoyle commented: “Live and Learn is a brilliant project. These events not only support prevention and early detection but encourage women to consider a healthier lifestyle, which is very important to both our physical and mental wellbeing. The events have also been successful in attracting new women to our courses.”

The programme has included health and pamper days,
