Aydarus Mohamed moved from Somalia to Victoria and is currently working onsite at the Stage One redevelopment of the Preston public housing estate.
The Preston redevelopment is part of the Public Housing Renewal Program which aims to redevelop older public housing to provide new and more social housing in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
Aydarus is working on the project as part of the Public Tenant Employment Program – an initiative that provides opportunities for public housing tenants like Aydarus gain sustainable employment and skills.
