Dunedin Refugee Graduation August 2017

What a wonderful occasion for the Syrian and Palestinian families who have recently settled in their new home town of Dunedin. On the 4th of August nine families celebrated graduating from the Refugee Connect programme at Carisbrook School.

Local 20/20 Trust Refugee Dunedin coordinator Janine Lonergan said it was a great day for the families as they committed to the 30 hour training with ease.

The newly up-skilled families have taken home their new refurbished devices and will be able to engage better with their families overseas and with their new communities here in New Zealand.

Happy faces as the families receive their certificates.

Well done everyone.
