“empowering women through fishing”
NATALIE HAIRE • GUIDE TO THE GOOD • MAY 13, 2019
Last summer, during my Canada summer job with Fishing for Success, I was lucky to have the opportunity to tag along with Kimberly Orren for the Girls Who Fish program.
Girls Who Fish is a community program taught by women for women of all ages, to give them a hands-on opportunity to learn traditional Newfoundland fishing knowledge and culture. The program is offered through Fishing for Success, a not-for-profit based out of the Island Rooms of Petty Harbour. Kimberly Orren, the co-founder of Fishing for Success, takes the lead on this program, breaking the cycle of the fishing tradition being passed down through men.
