This year for International Women’s Day we are spotlighting Australian charities supporting and doing incredible work for Australian women. Our aim is to bring awareness, further educate and offer the opportunity to donate directly to these amazing charities.
RizeUp works in partnership with specialist domestic violence services across Australia to help women and children affected by domestic violence. In Australia, domestic and family violence is the biggest social injustice that we are confronted with. Research has shown that 1 in 3 women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them.
Their programs assist women and their children in emergency relocation, setting up and furnishing homes sourced by specialist services to support clients moving on from domestic violence and helping impacted children in their healing process. To support their amazing work, RizeUp accept donations of money, furniture, household goods and electrical items.
Founder and CEO Andrea Goddard established Stars Foundation in 2015 because of the gender inequity in funding for mentoring programs supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Stars Foundation uses a highly successful, tailored approach to provide holistic mentoring through academic support, personal health and wellbeing, music, drama and dance, art, cooking and nutrition, and exercise and sport.
Stars Foundation’s operate full-time, intensive support programs with the key goals for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls being school attendance, completion of Year 12 and a successful transition into work or study.
