WAVE supports Leela Kruger's study exchange

WAVE supported the application of Leela Kruger from Waltja in the Northern Territory to attend the Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education (ASPBAE)  study exchange.  As Leela says: The reason why I'm here is because I got the opportunity to attend a study exchange to meet with other Adult Educators from all different countries. With this opportunity I get to see a different prospective of the different types of adult educators, learning the different cultures and sharing my experiences with others and learn new ones. I really couldn't haven't done it without WAVE ( Women In Adult and Vocational Education) and Waltja (my work) for supporting me with my nomination. For the whole 3 years I've been working at Waltja and being my first job after I finished school, they have support me so much. Self development and professional development. Not only do they support me and other staff but another 30+ remote communities in central Australia. Many projects such as youth, aged care, ERF, money management, family mental health and more. This organisation is just like one big family. I would have been any prouder to work for this organisation.


I would like to thank everyone at Waltja for their support also WAVE for giving me the opportunity and ASPBAE ( Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education) for accepting my application and giving me the opportunity to come and learn from this experience. It's not everyday you get to travel to a different country and experience their culture but to meet with other people from all over the world in the same work field as you is amazing and to be the only person from Australia selected. I feel so honored and blessed to be apart of this.
