SGP Sustainability Session

The Muslim Women’s Association of SA always looks for SGP (Settlement Grants Program) presenters who can cover relevant issues for newly arrived women and their families. 

On Thursday 29th November 2018, Nick Brummer and his team from the project “Adelaide Community Leaders Course in Sustainability” presented an information session at our office on recycling.

There was a visual presentation along with activities which made the information easy to understand and fun for the group. MWASA will make use of the “Mini Bin Game” donated to us for future programs. The game has 3 mini bins and a variety of household rubbish, the aim of the game is to put the rubbish in the correct bin.

Nick and his team were culturally sensitive and responded patiently to all group questions. This put the group at ease in asking questions and clearing all doubts.

Overall the session was well presented and we feel that the purpose of the project “Adelaide Community Leaders Course in Sustainability” was achieved since the group will be using what they have learned in their everyday life and reducing their impact on our environment.
