Hideo Ueda, Vanuatu Warrane Work camp

posted in: Volunteer Testimonies, Warrane | 0

Warrane College UNSW is an independent residential college for men affiliated with the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Since 1970, Warrane has been a home away from home for thousands of young men studying at university. Work camps are organised and run by Warrane College in conjunction with Reledev.

Warrane College has been running work camps to Aboriginal communities and Asia Pacific countries like Vietnam and Vanuatu from 2014, in partnership with Reledev. The initiative started in 1987 with the intention to serve people in need in developing countries and disadvantaged communities within Australia.

Work camps also aim to encourage the generosity and sense of solidarity of young Australians.

“Building a classroom for the students at San Michele Primary School was a life changing project for me. Learning about their culture, playing soccer and receiving a warm welcome into the community pushed us to work even harder through the humidity and blazing heat. English lessons in the classrooms made me greatly appreciate the education facilities we have and how privileged we are.”
