choir for new immigrant families
WOFOMO in partnership with CCI (Catholic Centre for Immigrants) started a choir for new immigrants on Saturday April 2nd, 2016.
This activity is specially for families who are new to Canada and want to practice English in a different way, through singing.
We have volunteers who take care of the children.
What a great opportunity to meet other people and share experiences while learning.
Thanks to everybody involved in this project.
WOFOMO is a not for profit organization founded in 2013.
