Gradual Rising of Women (GROW) has embark upon a new initiative called Project 150: Accomplished 150 Immigrant Women. This initiative aims to capture the voices of 150 accomplished immigrant women with featured edition of Indigenous women, Promising Young, Women and Leadership. That will help GROW to both celebrate and document their contribution to Canada and share their stories of struggles, successes and accomplishments with our community and surrounding areas.
