Each of the families were excited to have completed their training and to be able to go home and use their computers to find employment, communicate with loved ones overseas and to help with their children's education.
With many of the supporting partners there to celebrate the day. Such as Abdi Bihi from the Ministry of Education, Lucy Anderson from the Red Cross who presented the families with their certificates. Vanisa Dhiru, Executive Director of 2020 Trust and Chairman of the Porirua e-Learning Trust Mr Graham Kelly.
With this being my first refugee family graduation I would like to say a special thank you to all trainers, interpreters, supporters, drivers and not to mention the Porirua RSA for hosting each Wellington Refugee Group.
The success of these programmes is dependent on the commitment of the families and the great work from all the support partners involved.
