Zara’s House – The Team
Refugees and Partners is a TEAM of friends.
They are passionate about helping refugees
particularly the women
to settle into their new homes in Australia.
Most members of the team are women
with families of their own.
They know the challenges of parenting in society today
and understand the systems
that are part of life in the technological world of today.
They are familiar with the main features of the local area
schools, shops, doctors, churches, mosques,
playgrounds, parks, beaches, lakes and transport services.
What a gift to fearful newcomers
to share their anxieties with a kindly ear
and learn the Aussie assurance “no worries”.
Added to domestic practicalities
Some Zara’s partners have outstanding handcraft skills.
Many have entrepreneurial experience.
Some have ability in marketing.
Others have skill with on-line shopping and telemarketing.
Whatever their gift or experience
our team is committed to empowering refugee women
living in the local area helping them
to feel at home and celebrate
the richness of cultural diversity among us
in our part of Australia
