Rays of Care
We teamed with Days of Care to offer COVID education to the local differently abled community with all attendees receiving food parcels, educational hand outs and PPE. Sylvia our Executive Director was trained by AMREF before hosting the education session.
never forget where we have come from
We strive to ensure that we remember where we have come from and the mistakes that we have made so that we can learn from them.
Working to create better learning and participation outcomes is important to us from better surveys, focus groups and art expressions.
Too, we endeavour to assist at home when we can. Attached are photos of JI and friends assisting with bushfire, Impact for Women packing day and COVID distributions.
Timor Leste - flood relief
Sally Lay (Ethics and Sustainability Director) and her sister Lilly Lay (Social Media Guru) certainly haven't forgotten where they have come from and following the recent flooding in Timor Leste the team at Jifunze decided to expand our ACNC status to assist with the provision of sanitary and health supplies to the locals of Tibar.
The girls have done an incredible job with fundraising and we applaud them as we embark on the next stage of the project, sourcing the required items for the locals.
Jifunze International will be providing basic sanitary items including shampoo, soap, dental health supplies, sanitary pads and nappies to the locals in a one-time care package as they start to rebuild their homes and lives. Stay tuned for follow-up photos!
