WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL

Providing emergency support for women in Afghanistan. $50 contributes to providing safe shelter, resources and aid to the thousands of women, children and families who are facing violence and uncertainty.
Over the past few decades, Women for Women International has reached more than 120,000 women in Afghanistan, and they hope to increase services for those who are now displaced and who need them now more than ever. 
Women across Afghanistan—especially women’s rights advocates—are concerned they will lose hard won rights to education, health care, employment, and the freedom to travel or leave their homes. These are difficult hours and days, but the Women for Women team is confident that given their history of working with community and religious leaders across the spectrum, engaging men as well as women, that they will be able to continue to serve their participants and their families safely.

EMPOWER WITH LITERACY  |  The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.

Specialised literacy support for First Nation and Torres Strait Islander children.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to fall through the cracks of our education system, trapping them in a cycle of vulnerability and illiteracy. This devastating gap is particularly evident in remote Indigenous communities, where the writing abilities of year 9 students are at year 1 level. If not addressed in the early years, this issue continues into adulthood.
In remote areas, up to 70% of Aboriginal adults are ‘functionally illiterate’. This is a national tragedy.
We believe literacy is freedom; to take control of your life, be informed, have a voice, stand up for your rights, resist exploitation, be self-confident and self-reliant. Literacy unlocks the door to learning and a world of endless possibilities.
The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation is transforming lives through community-driven, ground-breaking and best practice literacy programs. Working in English and Indigenous First Languages, ALNF is committed to creating sustainable, long-term change.
$12 pays for a day of specialised literacy support in an Indigenous community.

PROTECT A WOMAN |  Women's Community Shelters.

Providing shelter to a women who are escaping domestic violence.
In this current COVID-19 crisis, Women's Community Shelters is experiencing a 25% increase in inquiries for safe accommodation for women and children who are homeless or escaping domestic violence. Existing services were already at full capacity, with more than 50% of women seeking shelter turned away due to a lack of beds.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Now, there are many more. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
$50 provides a hot meal and a safe, comfortable place to stay for one night.

A conversation could change a life.

Close the Gap Campaign.

Joslin is proud to partner with and support ANTaR in this years National Close the Gap Day on Thursday 18th March 2021. We have committed to donating 50% of direct sales proceeds on this day to support the Close the Gap Campaign to raise awareness about the New National Agreement on Closing the Gap and keep pressure on governments to uphold their commitments under the Agreement. 
The National Close the Gap campaign has been running since 2006 and its objective is to close the health and life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians within a generation. Indigenous people in Australia are more likely than most other population groups to have pre-existing health conditions – making the Indigenous community more vulnerable to more severe impacts from health crisis such as the current global pandemic.
ANTaR is a not-for-profit national advocacy organisation dedicated specifically to the rights - and overcoming the disadvantage - of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They do this primarily through lobbying, public campaigns and advocacy. 
Their focus is on changing the attitudes and behaviours of non-Indigenous Australians so that the rights and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are respected and affirmed across all sections of society.
