Women and girls across the world are fighting every single day for their stories to be heard and for their lives to be empowered with the privileges we can easily forget about – safety, privacy, freedom, education, choice and opportunity.
There are *thousands* of incredible charities in Australia furthering causes that directly impact the welfare of women and girls, as well as spreading awareness and knowledge. It’s hard to know where to channel your support first.
This is why Ostelin is using its Project Strong campaign to support everyday people making a positive difference to the lives of others.
They've partnered with the Australian charity 100 Women to help empower and fund women’s and girls' projects through community grants. Since their partnership began in 2022, over 21,000 women and girls have directly benefited.
Each of the five grassroots charities receiving a grant are working to support women and girls through bettering their health, educational and economic freedom. The line-up of charities includes an organisation working to improve refugee and asylum seeker women and girls’ health literacy, one that provides shelters and transitional accommodation for homeless and marginalised people, and one bringing wellbeing support for families experiencing perinatal mental health issues.
