Our World is a podcast detailing the incredible journey Centenary Heights State High School students Rawah and Samah experienced when they and their family of 12, fled their native Iraq to seek a better life in Toowoomba, Australia.  


The podcast grew from a series of workshops the sisters undertook with journalist and presenter David Iliffe. 

Over eight episodes, they share their experiences of going to school for the first time and learning a new language, as well as navigating Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme which would transform their lives in ways they could never have imagined. 


'Inspirational' can be an overused word, but when you gain an insight into how incredibly liberating the NDIS is for people with disabilities, there is much to learn. 


The launch of their podcast - Friday 21 June at 5pm until 6pm is in The Write Gallery / The Lighthouse Toowoomba - 126 Margaret Street, Toowoomba CBD. Please rsvp to hello@thelighthousetoowoomba.org if you would like to attend.
