Educating out-of-home-care kids through the generosity of golfers
We believe every child deserves an education
The Foundation believes the generosity of golfers will give children an education to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
Education is the key to the future success of these children.
Under the guidance of the former Principal Commissioner for the Commission for Children and Young People in Victoria, Bernie Geary OAM, the Foundation seeks to integrate more than 10,000 children living in care in Victoria back into the community to give them a chance in life.
These children are vulnerable because of the substantial levels of trauma they have suffered. Much of it has been caused by severe abuse and/or neglect. Their trauma is not visible, but their needs are real.
Clinical research shows that fundamental sound care, supported by appropriate professional services, can make a difference in assisting even the most damaged children achieve happier lives and brighter futures.
With more than 500,000 Victorians playing golf each year there is an enormous opportunity for us to contribute to our broader community.
