Invitation to Circle of Friends AGM

COFA members at 2018 AGM

You are invited to attend Circles of Friends Australia’s Annual General Meeting
2 – 4pm Friday 23 September 2022
at the Effective Living Centre (26 King William Rd, Wayville)

Learn more about the work of each of our Circles as they present their annual reports

Plus hear from our special guest speaker Ahmed Hakimi.

Afternoon tea will be served afterwards.

Ahmed Hakimi is a Geotechnical Engineer who graduated from Adelaide University with the help of Adelaide University’s scholarship program for temporary visa holders, accommodation at Aquinas College, financial support from Circle of Friends, and friendship and support from many in the community.

Near the end of his degree, Ahmad found work at the international engineering firm Aurecon. He has been working on the North-South Corridor ground investigation project. Ahmad’s expertise is in soil analysis.

Ahmad’s journey from Afghanistan to Australia as a teenager, and his experience  of schooling, university study, and work, are replete with extraordinary meetings, and both joy and despair. It is a story full of hope, that is sure to inspire.

We hope to see you there.
