PWOA has three aims: firstly, it aims to address problems - personal, social, cultural, lingual or administrative - which might be faced by Pakistanis in an Australia. Secondly, it opens up opportunities for overseas Pakistanis to mingle with Australia born and bred Pakistanis by organising social events. Thirdly, it provides a platform for the Pakistani students to showcase their talent and all this at a very minimum cost or no-cost at all whenever possible and on the days which best suit the students. PWOA will strive to maintain and improve the collective and individual welfare of International Students promotes understanding and friendship between Pakistani Students and the local community. It will look after the interests of Pakistani students across all Universities and TAFEs as it does not represent one University, TAFE or College but will be the umbrella organization for Pakistanis from all institutes and affiliations. The PWOA hopes that it is successful in achieving these aims. Inshallah we would be able to look after the interests of Pakistanis all over Australia in the future. So We NEED You... :)
Different Pakistani organisations have been a handy tool over the years to promote the sense of patriotism and harmony among the overseas Pakistani community. Even in Australia in general and Melbourne itself there have been a few which have done their utmost to strengthen the connection between the expatriates and Pakistan. However, it was felt that there was a lot to be done for the Pakistani immigrants & students in the country as they form the biggest contingent of our community in Australia. Students/Immigrants generally operate under a lot of stress ranging from home sickness, language barriers, cultural shock, study/work load and work life balance to name a few. All these factors consume them so much that sometimes they feel a bit distanced. PWOA was formed is to create a society where marginalized and vulnerable communities are socially, economically & politically empowered through their active participation. To arrange community or cultural events which encourage peoples within the community. Keeping these issues in mind, there was a need to fill up the vacuum of a platform for Pakistanis and hence PWOA has been formed to fill this gap.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
