Runs free workshops for disadvantaged young people
Zia Atahi arrived in Australia after the Taliban brought war to his village in Afghanistan. Moving to Australia with his mum and brothers was a big step, but the support of new Australian friends and neighbours helped Zia gain entrance to university, where he studied photography.
Now an accomplished professional photographer, Zia volunteers his time to run photography workshops for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Because we supported Zia when he first arrived, young people in our community are learning how to express themselves. Helping people fleeing war and persecution land on their feet allows them to give back to their communities and benefits everyone.
Join our campaign and show the government that we want to help people land on their feet. Because when we back people like Zia, they have our back too.
