While some of the money raised will go towards our current directives (which you can read about here), much of it will be earmarked for our newest community initiative: a weeklong English Language & Computer Literacy Program for women in Alberta's immigrant community.
This ASCEND-sponsored program provides these women with the opportunity to gain English language and computer literacy skills to help them find jobs and communicate with family members abroad. Our goal is to help empower, educate, and inspire these women to reach beyond the barriers they may face. We are proud to be partnering with the Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, as well as other local organizations, to ensure quality and success for all who attend.
