Mission Statement

 

Young Buddies is a group of passionate young people dedicated to the betterment of the lives of refugees in Australia. 

   

By educating fellow Australians, we hope to raise awareness and gain support for the changes which need to be made to ensure that Australia’s policies towards asylum seekers and refugees are in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Refugee Convention. 

   

We aspire to create meaningful relationships with young refugees and to promote the social welfare of refugees living on the Sunshine Coast, through the hosting of social events and fundraisers.
