HAYAA News (The Horn of Africa Youth Agency of Australia)

  • Cultural Night: This has been rescheduled for Saturday 27th June to avoid any clash with other African events. Primary responsibility for the conduct of the event has been delegated to HAYAA.
  • HARDA celebrates Harmony Day with Hazem:  HARDA and HAYAA joined forces with ASCA (Australian Somali Community Association), EYA (Eritrean Youth Association), the Ethiopian Community Association of NSW, as well as the Ugandan, Kenyan and Sudanese communities in Sydney to host a wonderful and very successful Harmony day at Auburn Botanical Gardens on March 20th. This BBQ and Family Fun Day celebrated the beginning of our 2010 DIAC Diverse Australia Project- the Youth Careers Expo and Community Mentoring Program. The highlight of the event was the visit by local MP and Minister for Local Government, Barbara Perry and the NRL great Hazem El Masri, followed by a touch football competition organised by the legend himself.  Our great thanks to both.
