‘Refugees and Partners’ work TOGETHER
at Zara’s House Newcastle

the people, culture and services
in the Australian community
ABOUT US – OUR VISION
‘Refugees and Partners’ is about being a welcoming and inclusive organization.
The partners at Zara’s House offer friendship and share skills in handcraft, cooking and technology.
Some partners help to organise social events, communication and cultural exchange between refugees and the people in the Hunter region.
Our partners know about issues affecting relationships between refugees and the community – e.g. racism, islam-a-phobia, home ownership, jobs, drugs and alcohol, domestic violence, women’s dignity, care of children and cultural difference.
They get involved in advocacy for justice and human rights by joining in community celebrations and online petitions.
Members of ‘Refugees and Partners’ organise and participate in social activities, vocational programs, cultural workshops and religious gatherings.
Some partners engage in personal and group advocacy such as the Unity and Diversity event below.
Other partners get involved with local and national media. They use technology and social media.
Our members encourage care for all creation, personal integrity and commitment to the mission and vision of the organisation.
