They have sponsored a woman from Liberia by way of Cote d’Ivoire. She is settling in well. English is her first language but she is having to adjust to our way of speaking it. She has been volunteering at a number of places within Owen Sound.

Side By Side Owen Sound applied to sponsor a Woman At Risk earlier this year. We’re very happy to welcome a single woman from west Africa to Owen Sound. She is settling in well, and has already joined a variety of community groups. This was made easier by the fact that English is the official language of her country, so she has joined the Conversational English class at the Adult Learning Centre. She receives ESL and computer support from group members, has joined a church, a quilting group, and is taking knitting lessons too.
We are all grateful for the fine welcome she has received
