Refuge of Hope: Supporting Melbourne’s growing Latin American student community

COMMUNITY organisation Refuge of Hope offers Latin American students and workers new to Melbourne a place where they can improve their English, meet new people and find help in time of need. Jennifer Zhao learns more about the group that’s helping Melbourne’s growing Latin American community.


Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
