AWECC has awarded Sylva Mwala with a sponsorship to attend The Mandala Project Emerging Leaders Summit this November in Beechworth, Victoria. Sylva, who is currently completing a Diploma of Community Services at Wodonga TAFE, will also undertake a part-time internship with AWECC to apply his newly acquired skills.
Today, AWECC received a letter from Federal Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO MP, advising that she has made representation to the Prime Minister on behalf of AWECC's members and communities. This is in response to concerns raised by AWECC Chairperson, Sue Portors, over the political instability at the federal level, rising anti-migrant sentiment in some parts of Australian society, and the impacts to our local community. You can read the letters below.
A Poem By Christian. M. Bashimbe.
This is a long journey.
Out of honey, no more funny.
Starting a way, without being away,
coming your way from far away.
A hard journey, out of water-proof clothes and honey.
You couldn’t imagine how far the safe land was,
until the migration police boards and surrounds all.
