Our Impact

The Rivers of Hope Toolkit has been accessed across Canada and the United States. Our workshops have been facilitated with hundreds of students and community members in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.  

The Rivers of Hope Workshop was very eye opening... 

the presentation itself makes me want to take action.

This presentation encouraged me to look beyond my own race, culture and identity, to be able to be open and educated on others because many of us do face the same struggles on a day to day basis and we could possibly all help each other in some way.
