We are delighted to share the great news that the Ontario Trillium Foundation has approved IWOO’s grant application to the Resilient Communities Fund.
This grant will support us to rebuild our resilience & capacity to return to building healthy, vibrant communities.
It is a six-month training & coaching program, targeting the board of directors, staff, volunteers, and members of IWOO.
Once again, IWOO would like to express its gratitude for this generous support provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation within the Government of Ontario.
IWOO was initially created as an association of volunteer women dedicated to improving the lives of Iranian women and families. In 2009, IWOO adopted a new vision and elected a Board of Directors, committed to a strategic direction, that would be current, transparent and reflective.
We now help immigrant community members, alongside with the Iranian-Canadians, to successfully integrate into Canadian society by achieving economic, social, and political equality while maintaining their heritage and cultural values.
