Title

2007: Mon Community in Cultural Transition Project

Description

The Mon community was a small and young demographic so this program was started to give them assistance in regard to parenting and cultural transition for all members of family. Mon women experienced difficulties when it came to parenting due to a lack of extended family. Meanwhile the men were experience serious cross-generational issues and a need for different parenting skills in Australia, as well as literacy issues. The program was designed to give stronger potential for ‘Mon community to participate in the mainstream’, ‘build and share parenting skills in line with local welfare and legal system expectations’, enhance social skills in Mon children and help Mon women and children build new skills to assist them in cultural transition.
