‘Digital Library for at Risk Individual’s’ project
We are excited to announce our newest partnership with The Footpath Library.
Sheargold Foundation would like to contribute $10,000 towards The Footpath Library’s new ‘Digital Library for at Risk Individual’s’ project.
This incredible collaboration between Wheelers Books and The Footpath Library will allow people living in assisted housing, hostels, refuges, attending community centres or other outreach programs to have access to e-books and audio books through the Digital Library program.
This means an unlimited number of users will be able to borrow audio/e books making reading, learning and gaining of knowledge more accessible to all.
New Mentoring Program in the Illawarra region
This year we will be continuing to partner with the inspiring Top Blokes Foundation by providing a $9,000 grant towards two new ‘Stepping Up mentoring programs’ in the Illawarra region for at-risk and disengaged boys in grades 5 and 6.
Through weekly mentoring and social education workshops, participants have access to positive role modelling and increased knowledge and skills in the areas of mental well-being, anger management, online behaviours, discrimination, healthy relationships, masculinity, leadership and teamwork etc.
We are honoured to be able to work with Top Blokes again.
