The goals of ECWA are:

  • To help those Syrian and Iraqi refugees making their way to Australia, in order to offer them a second chance at a decent and honourable life.

  • To assist these refugees with the process governed by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, so they can lodge visa applications, thus facilitating their resettlement in Australia.

  • To offer these refugees the needed assistance and tool in order to adjust to their new environment with its laws and norms, thus speeding their integration within the Australian main stream population through a good command of spoken and written English, a tailoring of their skills to fit the employment market and higher education;

  • To provide these refugees with the needed emotional and psychological assistance in order to help them process any trauma they might have suffered because of the civil unrests they have witnessed and experienced, and overcome any barrier that may inhibit their full integration within the Australian society-at-large.
