“The Harmony in Action Project – Building bridges between the communities”, is a joint nationwide initiative sponsored by Project 18C and the Asian Australian Alliance Young Leaders Program.
It is all about providing opportunities to young leaders from various ethnic backgrounds to meaningful and value added initiatives which benefit the social development of the young leaders as well as the mainstream community at large.
Saturday 12th July, saw the launch of this project, where the Asian Australian Alliance Young Leaders – Newcastle and Northern Branch, led by Zi Jia (Aaron) Jin and Maggie Nga-Ki Chang coordinated students to assist Coast Shelter in Gosford with their restaurant, serving meals to the homeless and those in need for a Chinese inspired Saturday lunch. All meals were prepared by the Young Leaders with inspired flavours from their cultural backgrounds.
Senator Deborah O’Neill introduced the Asian Australian Alliance Young Leaders to the management team at Coast Shelter on July 2nd, and helped initiate this project. On her Facebook page Senator Deborah O’Neill states:
The Harmony in Action Project shows how harmony, integration and diversity can work hand in hand to produce measureable outcomes benefitting social cohesion, personal and professional development of young people, championing initiative and leadership in future leaders.
