Investing in people, places, and culture to create stronger communities.


Partnerships are at the heart of what we do. We partner with organisations whose work is aligned with our strategic goals and values.


Our work

In Africa

In Sub-Saharan Africa, where over half of the population faces extreme poverty and disadvantage, we support partners that are strengthening the wellbeing and resilience of communities. Our work prioritises the most vulnerable, with a particular emphasis on rural communities and the urban poor.

The countries we focus on are Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

In Australia 

Our work in Australia seeks to support women and girls who are experiencing disadvantage to be safe, thrive and contribute to a just and prosperous society. We focus on people facing complex and unique forms of disadvantage, where gender intersects with race, age and remoteness. 

We concentrate on First Nations women and girls, older women, refugee and migrant women and girls, and women and girls living in rural Australia.

Partner spotlight

We fund initiatives that challenge the status quo and promote innovative approaches.
