MYAN WA develops information and resources for the youth and settlement sectors.


Harmony Week Film 

In March 2018, MYAN WA and YACWA partnered to develop a youth film project for Harmony Week. A group of young people volunteered their time to develop questions and meet and interview politicians and community leaders. All of the young people involved in this project were part of the 2017 Catalyst Summit - Faizel Nabi, Hadi Rahimi, Lutfullah Ahmadi, Martha Sari, Nebyeleul Weldeyesusm, Pauline Chiwawa and Sadeqa Sarvari. A huge thank you goes to Sarah Imtiaz who was the young woman who shot all the footage and developed the film, and our supporters, the Office of Multicultural Interests and the Curtin Centre for Human Rights Education.

A Catalyst For Change Report
