FEW Presents: Focus on New Beginnings!



An interactive two hour program on Sundays from 2 PM to 4 PM at Reception House, Kitchener that welcomes and assists newly arriving immigrants by familiarizing them with Canada and the basic life skills needed for their New Beginning in this land. While our organization focuses primarily on empowering women; we have expanded it to include their children as well as husbands so that the whole family is familiarized with and gets excited about their New Beginnings in Canada.

Our presentation includes literacy, numeracy and general life skills to assist with their new beginnings. These skills are attained through games and puzzles, fun facts about Canada, and participation in hands on indoor and outdoor activities, including physical exercises. We have also had a cooking session.  Healthy snacks are offered at every session.

With enthusiastic responses from the families who have participated in Focus on New Beginnings, we are looking forward to meeting more new immigrants and helping them start their new beginning in Canada.
