Twinning program

The goal of our Twinning Program is to create social support for newly arrived woman refugees and to allow Montréal women to learn about the refugee experience firsthand. To that end, ARM matches refugee women with women volunteers in Montréal. Through regular meetings, the “twins” create bonds of friendship, exchange and solidarity. In addition we plan group activities at least once a month for all participants.
