Donate to a bright future

We have been able to achieve a lot in 14 years thanks to the support of our generous donors and partners, but we need your help to keep growing. Big or small, we value your donation as it ensures we can continue to make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of girls living in remote and regional Australia.

2022 Giving Circles Campaign: Bidyadanga and Beyond

Our 8th Giving Circles campaign was launched on May 23, 2022 with a goal of raising $50,000 (#50infive) to fund a full year in our fifth community, Bidyadanga.

We’ve been delivering successful, engaging Community Programs in Western Australia since 2010. We are committed to building on our achievements in the Halls Creek and Carnarvon communities and look forward to developing relationships in the remote community of Bidyadanga.

In partnership with La Grange School and the Bidyadanga Community (180km south of Broome), we are aiming to introduce and deliver a Community Program, along with an annual Travel Program to a capital City, commencing in August 2022.

75% of students at La Grange Remote Community School in Bidyadanga are positioned in the lowest socio-educational advantage quarter. Opportunity for employment is extremely low with employment available in the areas of general store, takeaway and municipal services. Broome is 180km north and is the nearest urban job market.

There is a high percentage of younger residents between the ages of 12 and 25 years and the community has placed a high priority on developing resources to meet the needs of young people.

Our aim is to contribute to the Bidyadanga community’s long-term goals and work with them so that we can become a reliable, consistent presence in the young girls’ lives, like we are for so many across Australia.

Since 2015, our Giving Circles program has raised in excess of $300,000 and we’re eternally grateful to all supporters who help us to make important educational opportunities available to Girls from Oz participants.

2021’s campaign was focused on funding a full program year in Kowanyama. Almost doubling our aim, the money we raised paid for four weeks of community program delivery and will see some of our newest participants able to be involved in our next Travel Program that will see girls spend a life changing week in Melbourne in November.
