STOP CHILD MARRIAGE - THE HUNGER PROJECT
In some areas of Bangladesh, up to 62% of girls are married before turning 18. These girls are not only denied their childhood, they can suffer from developmental issues due to early pregnancy. They're vulnerable to STD's including HIV, increased risk of domestic violence and have limited opportunities for education and employment.
We know women are the key to creating change for girls within their communities. Empowered women can achieve extraordinary impact, catalysing new and brighter futures for girls and their families.
The Hunger Project trains women to unleash their leadership and capacity to take action in their homes, villages and communities, to stop child marriage, violence against women and girls, discrimination against girl children - and shift hearts and minds on the importance of gender equality.
GIVE SHELTER - ASYLUM SEEKER RESOURCE CENTRE
Families who have fled violence, war and persecution are often then stripped of their basic rights in Australia, while waiting for an outcome to their legal status. People often live this - in limbo for years. During this time, more and more people, without the right to work, become destitute. Women and children are especially vulnerable during this time.
For the past 16 years, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) has supported and empowered over 3,000 refugees and people seeking asylum every year, helping provide a warm bed, food, education, employment support and much more. The ASRC gives them hope for a safer, brighter future.
PROTECT AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN - CHILD WISE
An estimated 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys are sexually abused in Australia.
Child Wise delivers ‘Personal Safety’ training to teachers, to help them educate children about personal safety, body autonomy, safe and unsafe touch and encourage them to express their feelings, particularly if they feel unsafe. Children with increased awareness of body ownership are more assertive in expressing their feelings are less vulnerable to abuse.
Every $70 raised educates a teacher and provides a manual with activities, templates and resources to teach children personal safety. For every teacher Child Wise trains, 22 students will benefit and be less vulnerable to abuse.
