How is this song seven years old? It still gives me chills like I’m hearing it for the first time.

This is an exciting project, and we hope it will help assist those of our people from the Stolen Generation and others to reunite with their families.”

The Australian Rohingya Soccer Club is a community out in Springvale made up of people who came to Australia as asylum seekers from Burma, and the team is made up mostly of unaccompanied minors. Once they finish high school they will not have a right to more education in Australia.

We have a small but strong community in Springvale that takes care of each other. The team is like our family in Australia. However, our community works really hard just to get by and it is hard for us to raise all the money we need to get everything an outdoor soccer team needs. As unaccompanied minors, most of the team is not able to ask their parents for help.

In 2016 we started out with an indoor soccer team and in our first season we made it to the Grand Final. We are really proud of our players for making it this far and we think we can go even further with our outdoor team.

We need money for:
– Victoria Soccer League Registration
– Team uniforms
– Practice gear
