The Ninoshenh Fund
Asigizhooniyaawe (collects money as a donation)
How the fund can help
The fund aims to reduce financial barriers to accessing support. Ninoshenh aims to support connections for Mama’s and can support a Mama’s preexisting village, or help to build this sacred village around her. Where possible, we want to alleviate some financial barriers through our community sponsorship and donation program.
Donations and proceeds from all fundraising sales go into the Ninoshenh fund, which aims at reducing financial barriers to support. This can include funding supports like Birth Workers (Doula), Natural Health Practitioners, and Counseling services. It can also include resources such as food deliveries and emergency supplies.

The Ninoshenh Community
Ninoshenh (Auntie) Counseling is about building the village around Mama’s and Aunties at all stages, including pregnancy. Our community of support can include collaboration with Birth Workers, including Midwives, Birth Keepers (Doulas), and Natural Health Practitioners.
Accessing support services can have many challenges. Financial accessibility doesn’t need to be one of them. You can make a specific donation to help wrap services around a Mama or Auntie.
