HISTORIC MEETING WITH FEDERATION OF SOUTH SUDANESE ASSOCIATIONS IN VICTORIA

Last night, leaders of the Federation of South Sudanese Associations in Victoria met with members of the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) for the first time to discuss how the GCM, one of the oldest cultural organisations’ in Australia could assist the present-day South Sudanese community.

The meeting held at The Greek Centre went for over an hour, during which both groups explored common ground and objectives- noting that education was a significant area of interest for both groups. The GCM leadership shared some of its strategic planning processes with Mr Deng and Pastor Tut, who also detailed the experience of their community and the issues that they face.

The South Sudanese leadership, which was introduced to the Greek Community by Multicultural Affairs professional Fotis Kapetopoulos was impressed with the Greek Centre and are keen to explore the Greek Community’s operations further.

The meeting ended with the group agreeing to work together strategically with the next step being a visit to a GCM school by the South Sudanese leadership.

Attending the meeting on behalf of the Greek Community of Melbourne were Theo Markos (Vice President), Costas Markos (Hon Secretary), committee members Nick Dallas and Leonidas Vlahakis and Greek Community staff Kostas Avlonitis and Jorge Menidis.
