Last night, I was honoured to facilitate a workshop on leadership and governance for 12 incredible members of the Sudanese community in Mount Druitt, on behalf of the Quirky Kid Clinic and STARTTS.
The Quirky Kid Clinic has been selected as a consultant organization for the Communities in Cultural Transition Project (CiCTP) which is been operated by STARTTS. STARTTS is the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors .The CiCTP project aims to assist non-funded associations and groups from newly arrived small and emerging refugee communities to develop governance and leadership capacity.
My role with the Sudanese community will hopefully be continuous. They are an incredibly inspiring community with already great projects in existence including settlement assistance, relocation and new child support, language skills for they children and social activities for the community.
They goal now is to establish an incorporation, apply for funding, create a community shopping initiative and extend these projects to reach more people and consolidate this already vibrant, genuine and active community.
The Quirky Kid Clinic is committed to the local and international community by engaging in several community development projects. Our community development projects are founded in a Human Rights framework, a Social Justice philosophy and a Community Development approach.
