Engage Your Church or Group
INF Australia’s passionate and insightful speakers and preachers can inspire and inform your church, school or group.

Or try a small taste of the challenges of life in Nepal through one of our highly engaging and participatory simulation games. Perfect for youth groups, young adults, and groups of all ages, our simulation games open up new worlds & tackle big issues in a fun and challenging way.
