|Dear friends and supporters,
Welcome to our final newsletter for 2014. It’s been a busy 12 months, and we still have several major events to go before we can celebrate the end of another successful year.
It has been another very satisfying year working with our partners and other diaspora organisations. Every year I’m amazed that such a small organisation can achieve such a vast amount, and I’m always inspired by the passion and commitment of the people who are part of diaspora organisations.
Our 2014 Annual Report, which was just released at our annual general meeting, outlines many of our recent activities and I hope you can take a few minutes to look at it on our website
Our first major research project, “Understanding diaspora-led development & peacebuilding
” was also launched earlier this month. Much of the work that is done by diaspora organisations in Australia is not widely understood, but our report defines this growing sector, its benefits and challenges.
Finally, a big thank you to all our supporters and volunteers for your generous financial support, time and expertise. We couldn’t do this without you. I look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
Denise Cauchi (Director)
