WORKING TOWARDS ONE DREAM: HARMONY
We believe bringing together our diverse community can solve social issues and create fair opportunities.
who we are
Dream Harmony, a not for profit organisation, was originated from the idea of creating harmony in our society by encouraging social inclusiveness in the diverse community that we live in today's society. Cardinia shire is one of the fastest growing area in south east Melbourne and there has been an influx of people from many cultural backgrounds settling in the shire. This is a great opportunity for people and also a challenge to integrate the new comers with the mainstream population. There is a significant opportunity to promote awareness of various cultures and embrace the differences. We believe this can be achieved by working at grass root level and in partnership with various formal and informal community groups, government and non government organisations. In a short period of time since its inception, Dream Harmony has successfully conducted a number of projects and currently working on some exciting initiatives.
We work at grass root level towards the integration of community members from diverse backgrounds through our multicultural projects.
We are building awareness of various cultures through organising events like International Movie Nights.
We believe events and projects which brings community together creates safer place to live. We have organised events such as Neighbour Day and actively participated in projects to prevent family violence.
Since we started our journey we have been working hard with members of our community, government organisations, community houses and many informal groups to discuss, plan and execute projects to achieve our goals - promote integration of people from diverse cultural backgrounds, build awareness and safer community. We have so far organised projects such as Neighbour Day Celebration, International Mother Language Day, International Movie Nights and actively participating in broader initiatives such as Act Against Family Violence, women's empowerment and leadership projects, food movement initiatives and projects undertaken by local community houses.
