Women’s Friendship Project

Joanne Robinson —

Are you a locally-connected Wellington woman who would like to get to know and be a friend with a woman from a former refugee background? Catholic Social Services and Changemakers Refugee Forum are growing the Womens’ Friendship Project with a next induction night on Tuesday 27 June 2023.

Pairs of women will then be introduced to each other and meet up once a week or fortnight for the next 6 months to share local experiences such as walks, gardening, and café and market visits.  Every two months you are invited to attend a larger group gathering of everyone involved in the project. Often a natural friendship continues beyond the project.  If you are interested, please contact Deirdre at d.meskill@wn.catholic.org.nz or call 021 2213944.
