The Somali Podcast Project, conceived and developed by the NSW Community Relations Commission, gives the local Somali community a voice to air its concerns and tackle issues as well as promote community cohesion and wellbeing.
“The Project set out to promote a positive image of the community as an active, engaged, and creative part of Australia’s multicultural community,” Mr Dominello said.
