AfrOzone is African-Australian men social support group program

A NEW CHAPTER

AfrOzone aims to create a safe space where African-Australian men can come together and feel safe to bring up any issues or ideas and openly discuss them without judgement and shame. Weekly on Fridays 12pm-2pm AfrOzone has BBQ at MECA. The program has managed to engage with African-Australian men from Mount Druitt and neighbouring suburbs who are struggling to seek employment and also are dealing with underlying issues such as past trauma, alcohol abuse, racism and homelessness.

The program was supported by Western Sydney Local Health District and Mount Druitt Westfield Shopping Centre. AfrOzone is a social support group which invites other relevant organisation to engage and deliver their services. AfrOzone also did excursion to a construction site to expose the men to opportunities in the building industry. Large number of the men in the program are in debt so MECA being Work Development Order (WDO) program sponsor was very instrumental in addressing this issue.
