A Karen Community in Victoria
EKCAV (Eastern Karen Community Association of Victoria) works to connect Karen refugees in Eastern Melbourne through sports, cultural and faith-based activities to provide a safe space to support new friendships. EKCAV has created a network of support for refugees trying to navigate the difficult resettlement process. Fostering cultural and language learning through classes run by volunteers aims to help with the challenge of raising children and youth in newly-settled families.
Featured Community Events
We hold activities such as a women’s weaving and craft group, organising soccer and volleyball teams, and a Karen language school. Follow our blog for information on past and upcoming events!

In the face of war and massive human rights abuses it is easy to be filled with despair or hopelessness. EKCAV is a community based organization working to bring refugees to Australia and offer support once they arrive. We know from experience that it is possible to make a real difference to people’s lives.
