CHOIR FOR NEW IMMIGRANT FAMILIES 2016 pilot project
WOFOMO in partnership with CCI (Catholic Centre for Immigrants) started a choir for new immigrants on Saturday April 2nd, 2016.
This activity was specially for families who are new to Canada and want to practice English in a different way, through singing.
We had volunteers who took care of the children.
What a great opportunity to meet other people and share experiences while learning.
Thanks to everybody involved in this project!
