Dear Supporters,

We are well into the holiday season and we still see an increase in young people from Indigenous youths entering the Australian justice system and although Australia isn't a poverty country they are still failing these young people and so it falls to us to lead the way for change. 

Our project is partnered with the University of New South Wales and together we are working in a very special partnership with a few indigenous communities to offer safe safes and support for young people within the community so they do not enter the justice system.

After lots of meetings with the community leaders and many of the young people in these communities towards the end of 2022 we have identified a priority list of support for these communities. The University will be using their resources to help with research projects for the communities that we hope will influence government, local authorities and business long term and Action Change as a charity will be fundraising to help the young people create a safe meeting space for young people that will include access to drinking water and shaded areas as currently they have no space and the heat in mainland Australia is too much. 

Once we open this space young leaders will take the role to engage others peer to peer and provide them with other activities and education that will hopefully decrease the number of youths turning to crime. 

All donations moving forward will be focused on this priority list and we thank you for being part of the solution and we are so happy that the young people and community members are so engaged and leading this project for us - 2023 is going to be successful for us! 

Thank You,

Introduction 

Even with Government initiatives such as Closing the Gap, a big gap still exists between indigenous Australians and the rest of the population. Youth is a critical stage at which life-changing decisions regarding one's career and employment opportunities are made. Youths from our community have limited future opportunities in their reach and our goal is to change that.

Report 

We aim to build community spaces for young people that are sheltered and have access to safe drinking water. We also aim to breakdown barriers for youths that drop out of education, often to lack of cultural understanding in school and language barriers. This project engages and responds to recommendations from the youths themselves. It costs $500 to fund a workshop for 300 youth.

Thank you for your support

Introduction 

Statistics show that an Indigenous person's life expectancy in Australia is 71.4 years compared to 81.4 years for others. Even with Government initiatives such as Closing the Gap, a big gap still exists between indigenous Australians and the rest of the population.

Report 

This project will drive down the number of Indigenous youth in and entering the Australian national criminal justice system, by engaging the youths to tackle their inequalities we will also reduce educational dropout rates and empower these remote and struggling communities to create ambassadors that will influence future change at a national level. This project success will be life changing for these communities but for it to work we need to come together and help today.

Thank you for your support

Report 

Multiple solutions are needed to tackle this option, first is a safe space for young people, in the heart of Australia temperatures are too hot to be outside. We aim to build community spaces for young people that are sheltered and have access to safe drinking water. We also aim to breakdown barriers for youths that drop out of education, often to lack of cultural understanding in school and language barriers. This project engages and responds to recommendations from the youths themselves. A donation of $25 provides a sheltered space for youth to meet in a safe environment.
