Thank you

July 29, 2016

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to the 143 donors who gave to this project! Your incredible generosity has ensured this community service can continue its vital service. By extending the Refugee Language Program, your gift will help equip refugees with the language skills they need to thrive in Australia.

“As a volunteer at the Refugee Language Program, I see first-hand the profound impact of your generosity. Funding from donors means we’re able to help more refugees unlock their potential, and that’s a wonderful thing to be a part of! Thank you.” – Karen Garlan, Refugee Language Program volunteer and PhD Student at Sydney School of Public Health.

It’s not too late

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Refugee Language Program thus far –  your generosity is sincerely appreciated. With just a few hours to go, we’re so close to hitting our goal of $10,000!

Click ‘share’ and help spread the word! We can still make a huge difference to refugees in Australia. 

We've hit $5,000 but we're not stopping here.

June 29, 2016

We are only six days into our campaign and thanks to you, our generous supporters we have hit our original goal of $5000! But we’re not stopping here.

Every dollar raised for the Refugee Language Program is used to support refugees by equipping them with the language skills crucial for success within Australia. The more we raise, the more refugees we can assist. 

With this in mind, we have increased our goal to $10,000. By extending our target, we can continue to run the Refugee Language Program while we apply for other sources of continuous funding.

As a community, we can give refugees a voice in Australia.

The Refugee Language Program has made all the difference for Arman*, a young psychologist who enrolled in several Academic English classes on campus. The funding we received allowed us to link Arman with a tutor who worked with him for three hours a week on writing and comprehension skills.

Today, Arman is a registered psychologist in a clinic that deals primarily with war-traumatised patients.

This story is just one of the many success stories the Refugee Language Program is making possible. Please continue to share this project with your friends and networks.

Together we can continue to make a huge difference. Thank you.
