Year 10 Students Aim to Raise $2000 During the Month of September in Support of ‘The Haven’, Women’s Refuge

During August, our Year 10 students participated in “Walk the Talk” workshops, with the aim of building awareness around domestic violence and women’s homelessness.  

As a follow up to this, Year 10 are engaging in the “Chores for a Cause” Program which involves young men being sponsored for carrying out domestic chores. The funds raised from this initiative will then be donated to “The Haven”, which is a Women’s refuge here in Penrith.

Year 10 have set themselves a fundraising goal of $2000 by the end of September.

Women’s Community Shelters works with communities to establish new shelters which provide a safe bed and support enabling homeless women to rebuild self-esteem and achieve control of their lives.

Chores for a Cause is an opportunity for every young person (aged from 8 to 18!) to know they are change makers.
