One of our community grant recipients is the excellent Helping Hoops basketball program. Migrant refugee children in North Melbourne are learning leadership and goal setting skills as they play basketball and are applying those skills to everyday life.

The national Sisters of Charity Foundation Tertiary Scholarship program is the only scholarship program that targets the growing group of young people who live in out of home care, now estimated to be more than 40,000 nationally. Some of these young people are the most disadvantaged in our community, having had a very traumatic start to life including going through multiple foster care or group care home placements until they finally settle.

Reconnecting young people of Aboriginal background with elders is crucial to maintaining the heritage of our indigenous people. Thanks to funding from Sisters of Charity Foundation, Indigenous students at Matraville Soldiers Settlement Public School and La Perouse Public School took part in a ten-week Seeds to Success Bush Tucker program with First Hand Solutions. The program involved learning with elders about traditional plants and their uses, establishing garden beds and sowing native plants. Participants were taught how to develop and conduct short cultural tours, helping build confidence and giving them an important skill.

Children who live in the tiny, remote community of Ivanhoe have very few opportunities for sport and recreation. The Ivanhoe Youth Centre’s Kicking Against Isolation Program helps young people living Ivanhoe to overcome isolation by allowing them to participate in weekend football, a privilege that most kids take for granted.

Ivanhoe is too small a community to support its own football team, so the children have to become part of the Hay football team located 210 kms away and travel to compete across the western Riverina.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation’s support provides transport and accommodation for the children and two adults to travel and participate in the Rugby League competition. As a result the group is able to also visit the cinemas, go bowling and shop in a larger centre, all of which help alleviate the social isolation they would otherwise feel.

In order to sustain the legacy of compassion that the Sisters of Charity have administered in Australia for more than 175 years, the Sisters of Charity Foundation was founded in 2000. Read more of our history here...

Needy children across 44 schools in Perth will now receive uniform packs (school tracksuit and waterproof parka) thanks to a grant that the Sisters of Charity Foundation have awarded to Manna’s Winter School Uniform Program.

These often developmentally vulnerable children from poor and unstable homes would otherwise go to school in wet, dirty or inappropriate uniforms. Now they will go to school warm and dry.

Having a clean, warm school uniform improves a child’s self-esteem, their school attendance record, behaviour and class participation. It also reduces the rate of illness in the winter months and ensures they feel a part of the school community.

Every day the Ecumenical Coffee Brigade van goes out on the street to provide sandwiches and drinks to the homeless and disadvantaged. Our grant covers the major cost of bread for the sandwiches.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation Tertiary Scholarship Program continues to grow and support young people in long term out-of-home care to achieve their potential through education. We are very proud of our latest recipient - Tasha Reynolds - who is undertaking Bachelor of Health Medicine specialising in Paramedicine at Western Sydney University. Tasha has chosen to study for a dynamic career that incorporates a broad knowledge of patient care, human anatomy, crisis intervention and communications. Congratulations once again Tasha.
