Life skills after prison
Seeds of Affinity supports women with the lived experience of prison to re-integrate into their communities.
Our Foundation is supporting Seeds of Affinity to provide Life Skills programs to these women, many of whom are traumatised by their experiences.
The program offers life skills in cooking, budgeting and health and wellbeing. It also offers the women a pathway to employment by building their technology skills, hospitality skills and business skills through a social enterprise.
Literacy empowers people
1 in 7 adult Australians (14%) have very poor literacy. 1 in 3 (30%) are below-proficiency level making them vulnerable to unemployment. Many more struggle with low levels of numeracy..
Educating disadvantaged adults builds self confidence and self-esteem and gives them hope for the future.
