Wellbeing and Capacity Building Initiative

This project, funded by the Department of Premier and Cabinet, aimed at strengthening the capacity of Wyndham’s Karen community through capacity building workshops and recreational events.


  • Tailored workshops based on community consultations helped build knowledge, expertise, confidence and enhanced participation.
  • Workshops included sessions on yoga, art and craft, dancing and cooking.
  • Outings such as a Yarra River cruise and sight-seeing across Federation Square promoted participants’ social and community inclusion.
  • Karen Wrist Tying Celebration attended by 57 community members engaged the broader Karen and Wyndham community.
