Project Humanity is an activity of HOST that is dedicated to improving the opportunities, education, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers within Australia who are unable to access government support services.

Based in Sydney, our objective is to assist and support new Australians as they settle into life in their new country. We focus our work on assisting asylum seekers who are unable to access support from government supported programs. We therefore rely heavily on public fundraising to do this important work.
