Femmes d’Espérance (Women of Hope) is an initiative born in 2018 and registered as a non profit organisation in Canada. It quickly grew into a network of women who are passionate about supporting other women and collaborate.

Femmes d’Espérance is the sum of experiences accumulated throughout the years. Our desire is to shed light on the person of the African woman, her talents, aspirations but also her contradictions. Emphasizing training and personal development, Femmes d’Espérance seeks to empower, equip, train, promote and celebrate women. Thus, bringing women together around the same goal, which is to be the positive change that we, women, can be. Whether it is through business or non-for-profit organisations, we believe that this is the time for women to use their talents to solve societal problems.  

Femmes d’Espérance is a network of qualified women in different disciplines. Our members extend beyond the profiles of companies that are listed on this website. Faith, passion, hard work and dreams of seeing women do better are some of the key things that brought us together.

To name a few examples, our professional network includes:

  • Accountants
  • Chefs
  • Communication officers
  • Consultants
  • Event organisers
  • Financial experts
  • Hairdressers
  • Human Resources specialists
  • Lawyers
  • Nurses
  • Managers
  • Medical doctors
  • Pastors
  • Phds (bio-chemistry, computer sciences, law)
  • Social Assistants
  • Social media experts

Why then do we need a platform like Femmes d’Espérance since by the looks of titles, the women of our organisation seem to be set for great careers. The answer is simple and complex at the same time. In the last two decades, the job market shifted from traditional approaches to work or activism into a dynamic environment in which power is constantly shifting. Femme d’ Espérance is thus a hub where women can find the tools to make a smooth transition.
