Not For Profit
Indian Care is a not-for-profit organisation set up in 2014 dedicated solely to address the welfare needs of Indian origin people in Victoria.
Indian Care's Project SASS and Wellbeing aims to support the social and emotional wellbeing of South Asian International Students in Melbourne. It is a student-led co-design project will develop and deliver culturally appropriate, evidence-based strategies to facilitate and foster connections with each other and the community by providing a safe space to share their stories. The creative workshops offered participants an opportunity to develop creative, communication and technology skills, assisting with job readiness skills and over all support for emotional wellbeing during a challenging time post COVID-19 lockdowns. The overall objective of this project was to build resilience by connecting the South Asian international students with each other and the diaspora to increase their social capital using the medium of creative art. The project offered free workshops in podcasting creation with facilitators Ayan Shirwa and Karina Aedo, and understanding power structures with Dr. Priya Srinivasan.
