GLAPD Harmony day get-together party

On the 17th May 2014, GLAPD Int., in partnership with the Great Lakes communities (Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and D.R Congo), held a fantastic get together party for the Great Lakes of Africa communities as well as the Australian community at the Granville Youth and Community Recreation Centre.

The day was full of entertainment including  music, traditional dances, kids show and fashion show.

Communities had the chance to enjoy the richness of Great Lakes region cultures and the traditional food from the Great Lakes of Africa. It was also a great time for networking, meeting  new friends and listening to inspirational speeches from the invited dignitaries as well as the Great Lakes community   leaders. Cutting  cake together was the most symbolic and prophetic action of the day.

Once more we would like to appreciate all our volunteers who tirelessly made the event as successful as it was. Special ‘THANK YOU’ to all our sponsors for your financial support: the Community Relations Commission, STARTTS, ANGLICARE, Fairfield City Council, Fairfield Migrant Resource Centre, Global Family Day Care Pty, Ltd and  individuals .

The Rendez-vous is next year around period. Please spare some time on your next annual calendar.

“ Our neighbour is our opportunity and Unity is our strength”.
