Employment training opportunities for migrant and refugee women

2021-11-22

Specialised training for forty migrant and refugee women in the Murraylands region has outlined alternative pathways to employment, social enterprise, self-employment and tourism.

The Australian Migrant Resource Centre received $9,000 through Grants SA’s Minor Grants Program for its Sister Act initiative.

Through the program, the centre partnered with the Rural City of Murray Bridge and Monarto Safari Park to develop a volunteer program involving participants in various roles including tour guide, driver and information centre workers – offering invaluable connections and experience in the region's growing tourism and hospitality sectors.

Australian Migrant Resource Centre Chief Executive Officer, Eugenia Tsoulis said, “The confidence of every one of these women grew throughout the year of weekly sessions, enabling them to network with agencies and organisations increasing their knowledge and skills – including some who are undertaking further education and even starting their own business.”
