Our Current Projects
We visit International Student accommodation facilities to offer a homemade meal, English conversation, local information, care and support for residents.
This program is about living an attitude of care for others regardless of their background, religion, culture or experience. These meals are often a place for confusing Australian sayings to be understood, for worry about study to be shared and for students to be encouraged in all aspects of their lives.

In Harmony: Tai Chi
In partnership with Young Christian Workers Adelaide, we facilitate a Tai Chi session in our hall. The practice of Tai Chi slows the mind, recentres the body and brings calm and harmony to participants. It is available via live-stream if you are unable to attend in person. Cost is a gold coin donation. For further information contact: Hasthi 0403 431 613
Face-to-face is a unique project which links people with the real-life stories of people not known to them. The concept was developed in Denmark in 2000 as a way of breaking down stereotypes and prejudice under the title: Human Library.
Anyone can book in to ‘hear’ a book title of their choice (ranging from: My best friend, living with a disability, being a refugee, living off country, becoming a citizen, going deaf, etc.
At this stage the project is still in the setting up phase, if you are interested in being involved either as a listener or as a book, please contact Jill: 0409178465
