AIEF partners with the Future Women Foundation

Introducing: FW Foundation

In the mid-nineties our leaders painstakingly hammered out complex new laws to recognise traditional ownership of the land.

It was a formative period in my early years as a journalist covering the often bitter debate from Canberra.

How far we have come since then is a question for others but the shocking inequality remains. And females, in particular suffer severe disadvantage.

Part of our mission at FW is to help disadvantaged girls, and few are more deserving or in need. This is why we have partnered with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation, an organisation with an exceptional record of educating Indigenous students.

As a result, a percentage of every membership of FW will go towards funding a quality education for Indigenous girls.

One of the women to benefit from the program, Libby Cook-Black, said the scholarship she received through AIEF had taught her to take hold of every opportunity.

"It will probably change your life and put you in a place that you never expected for yourself," she said.

At FW, where equality is our purpose, that sentiment applies to us all.
