Homeless and disadvantaged women from all cultures across Australia are in DESPERATE need of bras and personal hygiene products and toiletries. Too many are choosing food over their own personal well being.
One of the goals of Support The Girls Australia is to ensure that we empower and encourage self-esteem and wellbeing in women and girls by supplying them with the crucial items that they require to facilitate their overall health.
Over the last year we have received over 40 000 bras and in excess of 65 000 sanitary products and this has been without any press releases or campaigning, just word of mouth and social media. Our aim was to get it right and make sure we had the correct processes to make STGA succeed long term.
But it is only a small part of what we want to achieve. The women we are supporting are homeless for so many reasons. Domestic violence, financial hardship, loss of a spouse or circumstances beyond their control. We need to cater for all facets of being disadvantaged.
We provide women with bras, sanitary products, toiletries, new underwear. Our main focus is bras. There are so many charities that focus on sanitary items but nobody does bras. These are distributed by our volunteers across the country. All donations stay within the community they are received from. We have outreach teams that go onto the streets and help homeless women and girls. We supply shelters, domestic violence safe houses, elderly communities and support services. We support anyone that needs assistance.
Support The Girls is committed to promoting and providing a healthier and more dignified lifestyle for women and girls. We want to raise awareness of not just homeless women and girls in Australia but also ensure that we can provide practical and simple ways for people to help those without a place to call home. We support not only the homeless but also the needy and the vulnerable!
While short term fixes are important for people in crisis situations, our campaign is all about helping provide long term, sustainable solutions that help people experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives.
