2 Worlds 2 Words

2 Worlds 2 Words


Our 2 Worlds 2 Words campaign highlights the story of our refugee and migrant community leaving behind their world to come to a new world, Australia. In some ways they are still living in two worlds. 2 Worlds 2 Words is a project that asks us to share two words of hope, strength, confidence or advice for both newly arrived and established individuals.

With the connection that the Western Sydney MRC both creates and builds on with the newly arrived and existing communities, we hope to bring 2 words from organisations near and far covering many different areas of focus.

These simple two words can be spoken in any language and become the inspirational cornerstone for refugees to live independently, and build confidence in their new world.
