WE HELP! Ukraine to GTA / Newmarket Mini Art Club
WE HELP! Ukraine to GTA is a non-profit organization aiming at providing support to the displaced Ukrainian families arriving in Canada on the CUAET program. Established in 2022 and with the support of more than 150 volunteers we provide assistance in housing, transportation, delivery of warm clothes and household items, an urgent support as well as an informational support to Ukrainian families in GTA and Ontario.
In January 2023 we launched a Newmarket Mini Art Club for displaced Ukrainian families / CUAET at the Newmarket Public Library, Newmarket, ON. Lessons are provided for no cost, every Saturday, January – December 2023, for 3 groups:
Group 1 - children aged 4 - 7 years old (inclusive learning) – up to 10 - 15 students,
Group 2 - teenagers aged 8 -15 years old – up to 10 - 15 students,
Group 3 - adults and seniors - up to 10-20 students.
All activities led by volunteers from Ukraine & Canada include graphic arts, crafting, educational games, Ukrainian language 30 minute classes for children, Ukrainian traditional Petrykivka style painting, knitting, educational sessions, etc.
Cultural events and the Newmarket Mini Art Club organized by our volunteers provide a valuable opportunity for Ukrainian families to meet, to network and to receive support, to learn more about the Canadian culture, to learn English language, to embrace Ukrainian culture (music, literature, art as Petrykivka painting), to better understand and integrate into Canadian life as well.
