We believe that more can be done to improve education and employment outcomes for students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women. 

The Girls from Oz (g-oz) program, uses a tried and tested performing arts engagement model developed over 30 years by the Australian School of Performing Arts, to engage and re-engage females living in some of the most at-risk communities in Australia.

    “This week I really enjoyed g-oz. G-oz makes me feel very happy, strong and proud of who I am."
  • Darren FoynesParent of Halls Creek student
    “I am 100% behind g-oz. It gives them opportunity to develop not just in sport, not just in art, but it helps them develop holistically as young women and gives them another avenue to develop their own life.”

  • Kathleen NoonanJournalist
    “In a world where we tend to park the ambulances at the bottom of the cliff and pour money into pick-up-the-pieces services, donating to Girls from Oz is like putting safety rails at the top of the cliff. It’s intelligent philanthropy.”
  • Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVOg-oz Patron
    “Girls from Oz is utterly inspiring – it builds talent, confidence and self discipline in the girls who thrive through involvement in the program.”

The beauty of a Giving Circle is that it relies on many small contributions by many different people. Bringing like-minded people together, individual donations are pooled so that, collectively, the donations have a bigger impact. 

Through g-oz Giving Circles, you can help us reach our $50,000 goal  to fund a year's worth of performing arts education for our newest community, Kowanyama on the Cape York Peninsula.

@clarewever was the Melbourne Choir Leader of the @ausgirlschoir in 2020 and in 2021 is studying Biomedicine at @unimelb. During her time as a chorister in the AGC Clare and her family hosted g-oz participants on two Travel Programs to Melbourne and Clare's interest in our work was piqued. In May Clare joined the team on our second ever visit to Kowanyama and now she and her Mum, Cathy, have committed to coordinating a g-oz Giving Circle. Together Clare and Cathy and 38 other Giving Circle Coordinators are aiming to raise #50fortheirfuture by June 30.  To make a donation to one of our Giving Circles please go to www.givenow.com.au/girlsfromoz.
