Esta página é dedicada a todos os pioneiros que deixam sua terra natal em busca de um sonho.
The dream of a better life is one of the reasons most migrant pioneers willingly leave their family and friend in their homeland. Australia is becoming a favourite destination for many people who seek a safer and prosperous place to settle or an adventure that can enhance their development. However, the dream can be frustrated at times when important factors such as lack of information, lack of research or planning migration. Some key factors that can lead to less than satisfactory experience include language barriers, financial support, the absence of social interaction (low sense of belonging) and of course feeling quite homesick. I have read recent surveys conducted with Brazilians and one specific on Latin Americans. The results and conclusions are no different than my own observations over the past 12 years heading the Brazilian association in Victoria. Despite all the information currently available on the Internet, prospective migrants continue to come to Australia with limited information, resources and therefore continue to face many challenges in their journey (sometimes short, other times long). Most people who willingly leave their countries tend to underestimate the level of social integration (family and friends taken for granted) as they leave. For those leaving for a short period of time loss is minimised with the expectation of a brief reunion. For those who settle permanently, the journey is quite different. As an individual you are now in two different worlds and the one left behind year by year (despite many frequent visits) becomes distant as a new life with family is created in this new land. As migrant who has been in Australia for 28 years, seeing great settlement stories and frustrated and sad ones, I feel it is our duty as citizens to openly share our stories and information gathered here in Australia so those leaving their home country willingly (anywhere in the world) can come well inform and have a sources transition journey when they arrive in Australia. This page is dedicated to those who wish to find out more information and wish to connect with us to network and find out more information that can help them to success in their dream of settling in a far-away land.
