Six people tell of seeking asylum in Australia, fleeing their homeland under dangerous circumstances, living in limbo, and leaving everything behind for a new life in Tasmania. The stories are deeply moving, and deal with the themes of family, community, freedom and independence. All the protagonists emphasise education and life skills as necessary for creating fulfilling and autonomous lives for themselves and their families, and write about the great sacrifices they made in achieving these skills.
The Namaste Series is published by TCAL, with the support of 26TEN.
The Namaste books are also available in Libraries Tasmania.
