Positive Thinking - Learning to Lead

When Australians welcome refugees to this country they want the refugees to feel as though they belong to the community and that over time they will see they have a role to play in Australian life.

Global Reconciliation will tailor workshops to build community harmony based on the needs of women in the African community who want to belong and reconnect after traumatic and challenging experiences.

“This grant will help us support African Australian women to up skill and feel better equipped to handle the mental and emotional pressures of both family and work life in a new community. It will allow us to run a program that focuses on developing African women’s skills as leaders in their homes and communities that shape positive futures”.
