Asylum Speakers Awareness Program

Spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Kent Town, the Asylum Speakers Awareness Program (ASAP) aims to: 

> INFORM community members about the journey of asylum seekers and their living situation in Australia.
> EMPOWER people to think critically about one of the most pressing social issues in Australia, by providing them with alternative sources of information.
> ENGAGE community members in existing support networks that are improving the lives of people seeking asylum. 
> CONNECT community stakeholders with asylum seekers to foster positive, hope filled and compassionate environments where people are able to build meaningful relationships.
 

We begin our journey of understanding when we are willing to see the world through different eyes. Our trained Asylum Speakers are ready to take you on a journey, depicting the challenges and facts of people seeking asylum in Australia.

If you would like to host an Asylum Speaker, please contact us via email asap.rotary@gmail.com

Was it hard for you to get out of bed this morning? Imagine sleeping out in the cold all night – now that’s tough!

Join the Hutt Street Centre bright and early on their annual National Homeless Persons Week event, 'Walk a mile in my boots', and show your support towards members of the South Australian community who are doing it tough.
 
On Friday 8th August, the walk will be starting at Rundle Park (cnr North and East Terrace) at 7.30am and finishing near Hutt St Centre in the South Parklands with breakfast. The walk is easy, fun, makes a significant difference to people’s lives and you can still get to work or school on time!

This year, Hutt Street Centre would love to see 4,000 people walk in the city and many more walking a mile in their community. If you walked last year, drag a friend out of bed to join you this year!


START Friday 8 August 2014 7:00am for 7:30am start
FINISH Friday 8 August 2014 8:00am
WHERE Rundle Park/Kadlitpinna, cnr North and East Terrace, Adelaide.(map) (route)
