2. To empower and enable newly arrived persons from Africa and other regions to become independent and contributing members to their local community by ensuring they have access to all services and resources they require to settle successfully in Australia;

3. To arrange community and/or cultural events which encourage the engagement of those persons within the community;

4. To invite and encourage members of the public to make donations for the purpose of fulfilling the above stated aims of this charity organization;
