My Story

Luca's favourite week at kindy is NAIDOC week - he loves when the Indigenous guys visit his kindy and explain all the cool stuff about Indigenous culture. Bush tucker, traditional weapons...it's all awesome. It breaks my heart that I have to start explaining to Luca that Indigenous kids don't always have the same opportunities as him. The Cathy Freeman Foundation is working to change that! The vision of the Cathy Freeman Foundation is an Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life. ​ They have programs that train Indigenous teachers to teach in remote Indigenous regions, and have implemented an early learning program to build confidence across the family and ensure the kids are school ready. They have seen a positive impact on family relationships in these regions and in educational outcomes. How great is that! We are running, skipping and jumping across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in support of the Cathy Freeman Foundation! Please donate to our page so the Cathy Freeman Foundation can continue to deliver education programs and positively influence the lives of thousands of children in remote Indigenous communities. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity and support! Angela & Luca xx

About my cause: Cathy Freeman Foundation

The Cathy Freeman Foundation programs help broaden horizons and inspire Indigenous students to experience their full potential in school.

The Foundation acknowledges the strength and wisdom that lies within remote Indigenous communities. Our work demands strong and trusting partnerships with community, elders and school leaders. We partner with communities for the long haul, as we journey through the complexities of the work required to create social change.

 

The vision of the Cathy Freeman Foundation is simple but ambitious: An Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life.
