Charité LEO

Our Story

LEO Charity was founded by Mme Léonie Tchatat, a Canadian woman originally form Cameroon, to advance the social and economic empowerment of young women. When she arrived in Canada at the age of 16, as a female Francophone immigrant, Mme Tchatat faced barriers to finding her place and asserting her rights as a young woman. Thanks to her perseverance and the support of her mentors, she was able to build an organization to help Francophone immigrants from every corner of the world. With her passion serving as her constant guide, in 2011 she decided to create LEO Charity to support a new vision of female leadership, giving hope (espoir) and creating lasting opportunities. For her many initiatives, Leonie Tchatat is now a recognized and respected leader in Canada and internationally.
