Graeme & Pat - Continuing the RelationshipProject Updates RSS


Project Code: SAsy101

Graeme and Pat are passionate about continuing their relationships with local B people through offering skills training at our partner NGO. Although they are now based in Australia, Graeme and Pat are committed to returning to South Asia at least once a year for up to four weeks (limited by visas) to provide valuable training. 

During their visits, Graeme continues the mechanical training and driving school work he began, providing encouragement and extra support to the current driving instructor as well as helping with building maintenance wherever needed. Pat continues English teaching and provides support in other vocational projects. As there is currently only one team member permanently on the ground, Graeme and Pat’s time in South Asia is invaluable to the team. This project covers the practical, but necessary, aspects of the trips to South Asia.

Partnering with this project provides specialised practical support for B people and greater support for the team as they work to wholistically improve the lives of individuals, families and communities.

This project covers the practical aspects of the trips to South Asia and includes the following costs for a trip in 2020:

  • Flights
  • Visas
  • Insurance
  • Living costs
  • Resources for the training
  • In country travel
  • Driving School
Gifts to this project are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
