Vocational Training for Syrian Refugee Women
A Development Skills for Life course was offered in Brampton, ON for twelve successive Saturdays. Ten women completed three levels of this healing and restorative journey. They learned how to face the future without fear. An app was created to keep the women connected after the course.
In Milton, ON, eight women attended craft classes that included devotional time.
Lastly, WDP funding helped Beloved Women publish and translate two stories from the Pillars of Life. This series was originally written in Arabic to help Muslim women understand the salvation that God offers through Jesus. Since the majority of Muslims living in Canada do not speak Arabic there was a very real need to have the booklets translated.
