Rubina Afsar SWIS News

Introducing a new CultureLink partner – the Cultural Exchange and Support Initiative of the Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations at the University of Toronto. NMC-CESI is an educational group that was founded by a group of students in spring 2016. Its goal is to create a friendly space for Syrian newcomers on campus and a network of resources between the University of Toronto and other Canadian universities, governmental and non-governmental organizations and communities. The group meets every Saturday. CultureLink’s Settlement Workers in Schools program is partnering with NMC-CESI to provide training sessions on a variety of topics suggested by the Syrian youth. On September 16, Ebraham Kanaan from SWIS presented “The Art of Body Language” to an appreciative audience.
