DONATE YOUR SEWING MACHINE
The sewing machines are sent to our Women's Sewing Centres in Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Samoa. Through these donations, local women are able to learn new skills, and start a sewing business that will help them support their families.
Due to the fact that machine parts need to be ordered from Australia or New Zealand and this is extremely costly, please ensure that your sewing machine is in very good working conditions or refurbished. The Women's Centre is also in need of sewing machine oil and tools. If you can help, please let us know.
Please complete our donation form to organise a pick-up or drop off time.
KEEP YOUNG WOMEN IN SCHOOL
WFWP Australia has an ongoing partnership with Days for Girls - Wandin Chapter Victoria. These skilled seamstresses sew menstrual kits to be distributed by WFWP Australia to young women in the Pacific Islands free of charge.
This initiative serves as a platform for empowering young women to remain in school during their period. Along with the kits, WFWP Australia has duplicated the Days For Girls menstrual health book so that recipients can be educated about menstrual health. In 2019, 200 kits were distributed in the Central Highlands of PNG by the PNG Chapter.
Funds needed to support the shipping costs related to this initiative are raised through donations.
100% OF YOUR DONATION is going to be used to support this initiative and other ongoing projects in the Pacific Islands.
Contact Us for bank transfer donations.
DONATE CHILDREN'S BOOKS
WFWP Chapters will gather your children's books. We are looking for kindergarten and primary school level reading books in English and French, as well as textbooks.
The books are sent to New Hope Academy in the Solomon Islands, and to remote village schools in Vanuatu, Samoa, PNG and Fiji; where schools have no books or libraries.
