Ticket To Tigray
An Australian Story!

Shane Dolan was a small businessman doing comfortably well when he came across a job advertisement for an aid worker in Africa. Wanting to build a better world and keen to offer his skills as a water technician, he signed up with Community Aid Abroad and embarked for the war torn province of Tigray, in Ethiopia. In the midst of war and drought and famine, Shane Dolan set to work building wells with co-worker Peter Morrison. Part of his extraordinary job brief was to risk life and limb running gelignite across the border from Sudan - an executable offence and something that came back to haunt him during his years back in Australia. Late last year he finally managed to put the ghosts to rest when he was invited back to Tigray for a life-affirming trip to discover the fruits of his labour.

Thought for Today!

To decide and to declare, to create and to express, to experience and to fulfill, Who You Really Are. To re-create yourself anew in every moment in the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you had about Who You Really Are. That is your purpose in becoming human, and that is the purpose of all of life. by Neale Donald Walsch.


Of Kings and Bandits

Of Kings And Bandits recounts the historical, cultural, and religious aspects of a war-torn society from the perspective of a young boy. It is a story of how the violence and cruelty of war strips children of their innocence and forces them to carry the burdens of adulthood prematurely. by Saleh “Gadi” Johar
