Success Stories

Junction Community Centre was approved $7,500 to support Sewing: from Ottoway to the NPY lands. The 12 month weekly sewing classes will consist of migrant/refugee women who will come together to socialise and be provided with free fabric (donated by Lutheran Community Care) and machines to do mending/ alterations/ dressmaking plus develop skills through the tuition of an experienced teacher. The participants will make items for themselves, their families and also for the families of the NPY lands, of which will then be delivered by Lutheran Community Care.

Indian Australian Association of South Australia was approved $7,500 to support the IAASA Centre English Classes for all levels. The recently announced more stringent measures for levels of English proficiency requirements are necessitating more support in this area for the emerging community.

SA Parkour Association was approved $1,050 to support Introduction to Parkour Experience. Parkour is an engaging training discipline that has very little barrier to entry. Participants don't need any equipment, or even shoes. Therefore engaging people with Parkour can equip them with both the ability and motivation to take their health and wellbeing into their own hands, and without any financial or travel barriers.

St. Patrick's Primary School was approved $2,900 to support Me and My Communities 2017. This project is a literacy and craft group ranging from information sessions of women health, positive parenting in Australia, to art and craft of sewing, cooking nutritious food for children and family. It aims to reduce social isolation, and help newly arrived, vulnerable women to acquire the life skills which they need in Australia and access mainstream services.
