Kayyo Oromo Women's Group

I recently enjoyed an afternoon of cultural celebration hosted by the Oromo Women's Group in Flemington. The women explained their cultural background and the challenges they currently face - such as learning to drive as demonstrated in an hilarious short film. Through the work of the group, the women are supporting each other in their Australian context. They are hopeful that the Occasional Child Care facility at Flemington Community Centre will soon commence enabling greater participation in education and support programs.
