1. Support Bushfire Recovery
Foodbank is playing a crucial role in the current unprecedented bushfire crisis which is devastating communities across the country.
As a trusted organisation, forming part of the official emergency response, Foodbank is acting as a conduit for the generosity of the food and grocery sector, and the general public who are keen to assist with essential supplies.
Foodbank is delivering exactly what is needed, to efficiently and effectively support the relief efforts.
2. Stop Child Marriage
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.
3. End Violence Against Women
In the highlands of PNG, up to 100% women experience violence regularly. Many are beaten on a daily basis. Sexual harassment is also extremely common in markets, where women's ability to do business is crucial for the strength of their communities. When women are safe from violence, entire communities and economies flourish.
UN Women is:
- Supporting local services to meet the needs of women.
- Training male community leaders to understand and communicate that violence against women is a crime.
- Providing training so women can earn an income and support their families
