If I have missed anyone, please accept my sincerest apologies. Many individuals, businesses, and agencies from the community and region of Portage la Prairie contributed time, knowledge and support for the Harmony Project. Together we were able to give a voice to those women and girls impacted by violence and to find solutions to reducing violence.
