This year Scarlet’s Fund will dispense four stipends to the value of $1250 to support young creatives volunteering in a creative capacity to a developing community in Australia or overseas.
Our steering committee have identified a number of projects we are keen to support, specifically:
Mittagundi Outdoor Education Centre http://www.mittagundi.org.au
A music program through SEMPRE http://www.sempre.org.uk
Malighat Community School in Bihar, India http://www.malighat.org
Publishing with community in Wugularr, NT via Kids’ Own Publishing http://kidsownpublishing.com
Seven Women, a Nepalese charity empowering marginalised women through skills training and employment http://sevenwomen.org/aboutus/team-australia (founder Stephanie Woollard gave Scarlet advice when she travelled to Nepal in 2010)
Additionally we are open to suggestions if you know of a project that is a good fit. Scarlet’s particular interest in East Timor, Nepal or a strong environmental project come to mind…
If you are interested or know someone who would benefit, or have suggestions of partner projects email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
