Anges Barnard

The Dream Project
__Cheerful . Motivational . Inspiring __

Despite working in a demanding full-time executive role, Agnes Barnard managed to set up the Dream Project four years ago to help school students from refugee backgrounds integrate into the Australian community. The charity’s volunteers are university students and young professionals who provide practical study support as well as motivational support in programs run at several schools. “Our refugee students easily relate to our volunteers because of their warmth, empathy and closeness in age. Students become more engaged in school and are more open-minded about what they can become,” says Agnes.
