Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of Mt Druitt Ethnic Communities Agency Inc and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
More information about Mt Druitt Ethnic Communities Agency Inc: MECA’s activities are based around providing services and programs for refugees and migrants in Mount Druitt. Our programs are client focused and individualised to meet the needs of refugees and aim to build independence, resilience and community participation.
Our programs centre around:
1. Settlement Grants Project funded by the Federal Department of Social Services - this project delivered programs that increased client independence, knowledge and ability to navigate and access mainstream services. This was achieved through casework, information & referrals, group information sessions, workshops, and access to other facilities and events.
2. CALD Youth Project funded by NSW FACS under the Community Builders Program - work in this area focussed on young people aged 12 to 24 years, from CALD communities in the Mount Druitt and surrounding areas. We worked with CALD youth, their families and collaborative agencies to establish and deliver programs that promoted social inclusion and fostered life skills in the context of wrap-around service provision.
3. EAPA – providing vouchers for clients experiencing financial hardship.
4. A raft of smaller grants were obtained to facilitate the provision of tailored services to our clients. These grants allowed us to continue social inclusion projects, community skills projects,and health and well-being projects.
