THE ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA SICHUANESE INC.
The Association of Australia Sichuanese Incorporated was established in 1997 by a group of like-minded individuals who had migrated from Sichuan Province, China. The not-for-profit organisation has strong belief in family and community togetherness, providing its members events to socialise, forums to discuss current affairs and support network to help new/existing migrants settle into life in Australia.
Currently with more than 1000 members, the Association comprises of those who are here to study, starting a new family, business owners and company CEOs. The diversity in its members helps foster an environment in which individuals can support and provide guidance to each other, furthering the group’s development and growth in Australia. This was seen as the Association played a big part in opening communication channels between Victoria and Sichuan which eventuated in the Victoria-Sichuan Sister State initiative.
Organising over a dozen events a year for its members, the Association also comes together during times of disaster donating to many relief funds including Wenchuan Earthquake (2008) and more recently to the draught stricken Australian Farmers.
