Support @PIRSVancouver to provide English as an Additional Language classes for refugee women arriving from #SyrianRefugees. 1,000’s of Syrian refugees will be settling in the Lower Mainland over the next 6 months. PIRS would like to help Syrian newcomers with their integration into Canadian society by offering specific classes for Syrian women arriving who have experienced trauma. The classes with cover parenting concerns, mental health and connecting to the broader community. Our instructor and support worker will use a trauma informed approach to work with the women in the class. Our classes aim to be barrier free so we will have free child minding and transportation attached. Your donation will help us to make this initiative a reality. Thank you for helping us to support women!
