Murray Valley Sanctuary Refugee Group Inc – Living Safely in Australia 
Foundation donation $7,000.00
To deliver a series of education workshops and a series of swimming lessons to a group of settlers who have arrived into our area from refugee camps in Africa under humanitarian visas.
Part A: education forums/workshops $2,500 – cultural transition – maintaining one’s own culture while also growing in another.  A response to the need for support – appropriate behaviour management, discipline, sexual health etc. Targeting young people. 3-4 workshops.
Part B: Swimming lessons $4,500 – most settlers can’t swim and there have been a number of drownings. A healthy way to direct energy, leisure time. Help settlers to socialise in an Australian setting.
