Charity music gig for ONE GIRL AUSTRALIA with a sprinkle of different artists from different genres. Line-up is all local Australian acts (Balcony Party, Natasha Pinto, Beat It Productions Australia, John Dyer, Rita &Peter). OneGirl is an outstanding organisation working in Sierra Leone and Uganda, some of the worst places to be born a girl. They have provided 326 full school scholarships, given 3011 girls the opportunity to develop business and entrepreneurship skills in Business Brains initiative, have educated 1882 girls and women on menstrual health and have rebuilt schools in the Magbafth Community and the Ronietta community. Their manifesto is "together we are changing the world, one girl at a time." Every $300 provides a full high school scholarship to a young girl, so the $10 tickets you are buying will go a long way in terms of changing someone's future. Go you!
ABOUT ONE GIRL
One Girl is a non-profit organisation based in Melbourne that is changing the world, one girl at a time.
When you educate a girl, she’ll change the world. An educated girl is three times less likely to contract HIV / AIDS. She‘ll marry later and have fewer, healthier children. For every extra year of schooling, her income will increase by 10 – 20 percent. Not only that, she’ll reinvest 90 percent of the money she earns back into her family. Educating a girl has a ‘multiplier effect’. An educated girl can change the world.
So far we've provided 200 girls with school scholarships, 1200 women and girls are now using sanitary pads, and 272 students are benefiting from our school awesomisation projects.
Join us tonight for some 90s jams!
