Build a Welcoming Community Through Friendship.
You want to make a difference so do we!
You like Land of Welcome, want Australia to be a pace where we all belong, a land of welcome freedom, safety and love for all! It is our common goal. Let's make it happen together faster.
We can help you develop FRIENDSHIPS between NEW AUSTRALIANS from War Torn countries IN their COMMUNITIES, THROUGH THEIR SOCIAL EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES.
The purpose of Land of Welcome is to enhance the sense of belonging within new Australian communities.
To Feel Welcome and Equal
Engage in More Friendships
As an advocacy group, we seek to influence, inspire and encourage.
We want to help all Australians understand that we truly belong together and value each other. We dream of bringing together people of all backgrounds at 10,000 picnics per year across Australia by the end of 2023! Picnics promoted via sympathetic political parties, advocacy groups, places of worship, social media and TV.
We believe that there are 3 meaningful ways to make Australia a truly welcoming harmonious country where all Australians can enjoy a life of freedom, friendship and success: To join new Australians in their community events; volunteer within their community projects and run picnics.
Our volunteers are actively involved
Our volunteers contribute to activities at the Atherton Gardens housing commission estate in Fitzroy Melbourne. We look for projects that make a practical difference (like supporting school communities, helping new Australians improve their English or establish small businesses, raising the profile of projects that will benefit from additional awareness and recognition...). Discover what projects they want to start/speed up?
To share friendship times and to assist them effectively:
Discover what new Australians and their community love doing, the social issues that matter to them.
Discover how to further support the growth of their communities and how they wish to contribute to Australia
Discover the projects they would love to drive faster with more support.
Discover what role they would like us to take to assist them with.
LETS WORK TOGETHER as one team on THEIR PROJECTS.
Discover their vision and goals, join us in our efforts towards the success of their community projects.
Why is this important?
To permanently change policies towards people seeking asylum we need to change votes so that politicians are always motivated to have much more compassionate policies towards people seeking asylum.
To change votes we need to create personally meaningful relationships, where all voters become emotionally committed to compassionate people seeking asylum because of friendship and the difference it makes in the voter's life.
We need to create opportunities for people to feel the difference their making through their daily and weekly actions, that they are part of a loving supportive community. A community where they make a difference and are also cared about and supported.
A community where those who have their doubts about people seeking asylum want to participate in, invited by people they love to an event that offers them something they're interested in such as learning how to cook a new cuisine from a refugee homeland.
Where provided their willing to be sociable are accepted as they are so that in their own time and space they may choose to change their attitudes and beliefs.
