ADRA’s Settle Assist project in Victoria provides healthy cooking on a budget for newly settled refugees in Dandenong, in partnership with Afri-Aus Care. Through access to a community garden, participants can learn about growing fresh healthy food and how to prepare nutritional food to support the family budget.

Conversational English classes, homework clubs, kids gardening programs and visitations to detention centres are also part of the program to provide opportunities for volunteers, refugees and migrants to work together, share hope and create positive change.

We are always looking for more willing volunteers to get involved, form friendships and make a difference. Please contact Michaela Jones for more information.


Selba’s story is one that includes much suffering and depression. But Selba overcame these challenges and found a way to help others facing similar issues. Afri–Aus Care Inc provides support services to migrant youth from African and other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds in Dandenong (Victoria), promoting social inclusion, crime prevention, community development and youth resilience. ADRA’s partnership provides: mentoring through basketball (Black Rhinos), cooking, conversational English classes, community gardening and family support; advocacy through the court network; and pathways to training and employment through ADRA Cafés. ADRA and Afri–Aus Care Inc offer non-judgmental, open, cultural-specific and comprehensive care that has been embraced by youth at risk and their families. Youth are offered the opportunity to choose what they would like to participate in and become more open to learning new values and the importance of respecting themselves and others.
