OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES ARE

PURPOSE

MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORK

ETHIC

DO TO OTHERS AS WE WOULD WANT DONE TO OURSELVES

WAY

THE BALANCED MIDDLE IS ENOUGH

OUR TRAINING

WE ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRADITIONAL OWNERS OF THE LAND ON WHICH WE MEET.

 

We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and the Aboriginal Elders of other communities who may be there.

 

Every woman and girl everywhere deserve to live free from violence and discrimination.

 

There is one universal truth, applicable to all countries, culture and communities: violence against women is never acceptable, never excusable, never tolerable.

 

Addressing entrenched discrimination against women in the workforce is not only the right thing to do – it has a massive economic benefit.

2019/2020 HIGHLIGHTS

Two visits to Africa (we paid own way) by 3 staff to view how money was being spent at Selian Hospital – we get regular updates of all expenditure with receipts and videos.

Moving to African run community organisations has been challenging. We have different mindsets, recording requirements, cultural issues, communication problems and more.

 

Having said all that, this year has been the most rewarding move we have made in some time. 120 children have had surgeries performed in Selian hospital in Africa by African doctors and we congratulate the doctors and staff at this hospital.

Since 2003 we have supported the Melbourne Homeless family’s program with over $300,000. We are looking at alternatives as there is now government funding in this area.

 

We have basic agreements (Covid-19 interrupted) with Marshall White Foundation and Launch Housing to expand the Homeless support in a wider program.
