Donor Spotlight: RBC provides a “lift” to Syrian families attending literacy programs
This year, 38 Syrian parents and 76 children new to B.C. will have an easier time accessing IPALS (Immigrant Parents As Literacy Supporters) programs thanks to RBC. A grant of $9,800 will help pay for bus fare, session materials and snacks for families attending literacy programs in Vancouver and Langley.
In addition, 25 Syrian adults will receive a “lift” to attend an English language conversation circle at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House. They will be offered one-to-one tutoring to learn English in order to obtain meaningful and long-term employment.
Along with its financial support, RBC volunteers have generously donated their time to support the IPALS program.
On behalf of all the Syrian families you are helping to build a successful life in B.C., thank you RBC!
