CHODARR is a permanent, catalogued, full text and publicly accessible archive of literature, documents and materials related to health and social welfare.  They are working with DEWC to implement a skill sharing and book publishing program called The Woman’s Drum.  The first phase of the CHODARR project is archive all of the Centre newsletters — the second phase of our work is to create a book based on our newsletters.

The project title The Woman’s Drum is borrowed from a poem written by one of our members over a decade ago.

So long, the Woman’s Drum
Has been alone
Kept in the back of minds
Silent in spirit.
Now, comes the time
To pick up the Drum
To sing the healing songs
Of the Women’s say.
