60 years of the Ecumenical Migration Centre

60 years of the Ecumenical Migration Centre

Since its initial establishment in 1956, the MCT has supported women from migrant, refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds around key settlement issues – housing, English classes, community capacity building, employment and training, family counselling and mediation, leadership programs, as well as financial literacy to name a few.To celebrate these 60 years of service, the MCT has put together a book called Opening Doors, which document some of the path breaking work to support women from migrant and refugee backgrounds.Joining me on today's program are Halima Mohamed, a leader in the Somali community and one of the MCT's program participants. Sarina Greco, former team leader from 1997 to 2005, and current team leader, Hutch Hussein.
