We are celebrating!

This month we are focusing on our 10-year anniversary fundraising event!

Your donations and support go such a long way and make a real difference in helping more Girls stay in school.

If you, or any of your contacts, would like to contribute to our fundraising event silent auction, please reach out! We are currently sourcing products, gift vouchers and experiences which will be auctioned during the event.

In case you missed it – our anniversary event is on Thursday 3rd November from 6.30-9.30pm.

It will be a Fijian-themed cocktails and canapés night hosted by our wonderful partners William Anglis Institute in a trendy part of Alexandria, Sydney.

Tickets are still available so find out more and book your tickets now.

Meanwhile, our work on the ground continues:  

We were recently contacted by the grandmother of a girl named Reena. Reena was referred to us because she is staying with her grandparents after her father passed away and she is at risk of dropping out of school.

Reena is currently in year 12 but unfortunately, because her grandparents are looking after a few grandchildren, they are having trouble with all the expenses related to sending her to school.

We spent some time with her family and realised that barriers to Reena’s education were small.  She just needed some support with items such as school supplies like shoes, a bag, some uniforms, and school stationery. 

As always your donations help make a big difference.  

We hope to celebrate all our achievements with you in November, including a live update from Urmila and some of the Girls in Fiji, while also raising more much-needed funds.

Places are limited so remember to book tickets if you haven’t already!
