Empowering and enabling women program

‘Empowering and enabling women’ program in the South Eastern region of Melbourne is a program designed to provide vital support to Oromo women through health education, settlement support, access to services, and social networking opportunities.

This project aims to provide health education and information sessions that are targeted at specific settlement issues to assist people newly arrived with limited English in Australia. There are a number of women in South Eastern keen to be involved in the running of this group also. An informal social and cultural environment is considered an effective context to assist Australian Oromo women in the South Eastern area to learn about services and to engage in positive activities together.

It also aims to open an opportunity for the women group to socialise with each other and also with other women and to develop stronger connections and networks within their community, whilst engaging in an activity that is enjoyable for them.

Some of the activities provided a way to enhance the bonds between those in the support group and bring them together in a way that they did not know was possible.

Oromo women’s group come in a variety of types and sizes and meet many needs.
