We’re super excited to share the stories in this year’s Celebrating People book. Members of our community share a bit about themselves, their experiences and aspirations.

Mark shares his experience of saving a man's life on his way to his next gardening job. CJ, talks about leaving home at a young age and finding a safe space at Rise’s Kira House. Then there’s Alex’s story from Eldoret to Australia. Alex shares his passion for supporting people with disability and the similarities between his hometown in Kenya and Aboriginal culture.

Each story reveals the importance of community. Ageing, disability, homelessness and mental health issues can affect all of us. However, they don’t define us. We all have something to contribute and together we can create communities that shine.
