SAWA-Australia news

  1. Zarmina’s wish to attend a university of fine arts with tuition in making statues became reality thanks to the support from SAWA-Australia (SA), who sponsored her studies at Kabul University. Now Zarmina wants to thank Australia for this support by making two identical sculptures to show the friendship between the women of Afghanistan and the women of Australia, one for Kabul and one for Adelaide. SAWA-Australia (SA) is running a crowd funding drive to finance her project and needs your help.
  2. The new Entertainment Books are now available for all major cities around Australia, in book form and as a digital book for iPhone and Android phones. Every book contains hundreds of lunch and dinner vouchers, two for one offers for movies, concerts and theatre, special accommodation deals in many cities and much more. You will find it excellent value for your region; having dinner for two only twice will often already recoup the price of the book, and you will continue to save and save for 12 months.
