The Rotary Club of Hall has been in discussion with the GO Foundation for a considerable time with the thought of seeking avenues that would facilitate greater opportunities for our indigenous youth.

Recently, the club signed an MOU with the GO Foundation, to take this work to the next level.

The club welcomed guest speaker, Shirley Chowdhary, GO Foundation CEO to summarise the Foundation and some of its recent success stories.  

The GO Foundation Ecosystem is based on the concept that by working together, organisations can help to empower Indigenous Australians youth with the ability to change their own lives.

The key goals of the organisation are to increase the number of scholarships to Indigenous students from kindergarten through to university whilst making the journey through school more rich and rewarding. In this way, students may be more likely to go onto further education.

The other aim is to work with corporate partners to help make workplaces more culturally safe and inclusive.

President Janine met with co-founder Adam Goodes for the ‘big cheque’ handover. This funding will go a long way toward establishing the program in the ACT region.

We look forward to further updates as the project continues to develop.
