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 condition, 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 sewing machine donation form to organise drop off, or pick-up.
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. Kits are distributed within PNG by PNG Chapter members.
Funds needed to support the shipping costs related to this initiative are raised through donations.
100% OF YOUR DONATION is used to support this initiative and other ongoing projects in the Pacific Islands.
Contact Us for bank transfer donations.
DONATE CHILDREN'S BOOKS
WFWP Australia Chapters collect your children's books. We are looking for kindergarten and primary school reading and learning books in English or French, and textbooks.
Books are sent to the New Hope Academy in the Solomon Islands, and to remote village schools in Vanuatu, Samoa, PNG and Fiji to augment existing school libraries, or start new libraries.
