Build a bike-FOR

STARTUP REFUGEES is an innovative educational and mentoring program to help refugees start-up scalable businesses. This program has been successfully prototype by Friends of Refugees (FOR) over a two year period and was initiated by participants who wanted to start their own businesses, but were not being assisted elsewhere due to their limited English. 19 successful graduates have gone on to start high growth businesses in blue-collar industries and now employ numerous refugees with a similarly disadvantaged background within 2 years.

I have been involved since 2002 in working towards reforming refugee policy by govts in Australia. My priority has been to close detention centres (offshore & onshore), to welcome refugees and asylum seekers and process their refugee applications on the Australian mainland. Boat towbacks are dangerous and violate the UN Convention on Refugees. Australia must welcome genuine refugees.
