Community education program
MDA's Community Education Program provides community education to mainstream organisations, schools and government departments. The aim of this program is to increase the broader community understanding and knowledge of people's experience before coming to Australia, as well as their experience of resettlement. This program also seeks to increase the cultural competency of mainstream services, policies and communities when engaging with refugees.
