From August to December 2007 the Karen Group Program was run at CIT Reid to increase community bonding and build strength in the Karen community. The project was extremely successful and produced many great results. One Karen woman was able to get a job working as a contract interpreter at Centrelink in Karen language. Another women received a scholarship grant for ‘further training in Certificate IV in Employment and Training’ at CIT during the 2007/2008 study year.
