Overseas Student Support Fund – Raising up a new generation of Language Development Leaders

Can you help train a new generation of Language Development leaders in the Pacific?

Project Description

SILA in collaboration with BTA in Papua New Guinea trained two gifted and proven translators from PNG in a 1-year diploma in 2019. This met the initial goal of the project to train the first in a potential series of groups of translators in a yearlong diploma course.

SILA training is also valuable for others involved in, or seeking to become involved in, language development activities in the Pacific. An award gained in Australia establishes them with training that is highly respected in their social contexts and enables them to competently coordinate or contribute to language projects and mentor others like themselves in years to come.

Extending this training to others hinges on being able to raise support for English tuition, travel, accommodation and medical insurance which comes to approximately $25,000 per candidate. Only finance stands in the way of this equipping becoming a reality for a new group of Pacific leaders.
