In 2019, Tara Filteau and her daughter Sophia Ghafoori founded Mother Daughter Empower, a social enterprise that was dedicated to running events for both moms and daughter. The idea came after realizng that there wasn’t very many opportunities out there for moms and daughter to connect and grow together. During the pandemic, the founders quickly realized that there was a great need for personal development and mental health services, with a 2.5 year waitlist to access mental health services, the founders knew that they could have  an even bigger impact on women and girls if their organization became a charity. Today, Mother Daughter Empower is a registered Canadian Charity on a mission to empower both women and girls to reach their full potential by providing them with free access to 1:1 counselling, coaching, workshops as well as equal access to accessible mental health, and personal development educational & empowerment events.
