Grant Stories

The English Family Foundation is extremely proud of the organisations we partner with. Each of these organisations strive to enrich the social fibre of our society, particularly within disadvantaged communities. They are truly inspirational.

 

An important part of our philosophy is to actively promote philanthropy. We are proud to share these stories of our partner organisations, and we hope you find them inspirational too.


Good360 Australia

  • Good360 gives unused merchandise a philanthropic afterlife. It’s good for business, good for people and charities, and good for the environment. In essence they connect business' excess product to people in need. For more than 30 years Good360 has been fulfilling the needs of not-for-profits with corporate product donations in the United States. Good360 Australia was established in 2012. It’s a simple model but one which has smart and innovative technology at its heart. They use an online platform, the Giving Place, to allow charities to connect to excess product that they can use in their organisations. Charities only pay the shipping & handling costs to receive the goods.

    The Foundation has supported Good360 Australia to finalise the first stage of their operations and is providing a further two years of capacity funding.

AFAP - Bairo Pite Clinic

  • Through their mission to be a leading agent for poverty alleviation through innovative and appropriate community-based development. AFAP (The Australian Foundation for the Peoples of Asia and the Pacific) is working directly with local partners to strengthen and empower local NGOs and community groups in developing countries.

    The Foundation is supporting AFAP’s partnership with the Bairo Pite Clinic in Timor Leste in their innovative program to prevent TB in young children who are at risk of sickness and death because of their contact with this disease. The program, which involves screening household contacts of infectious TB cases and preventive treatment for at risk children, will also enable earlier detection of additional TB cases by facilitating appropriate investigation of any household member with symptoms. This intervention, aimed at preventing the spread of TB and its devastating effects on children, is the first of its kind to be implemented in Timor-Leste, the country with the highest rates of TB in South-East Asia.

ActionAid Australia

  • ActionAid is an international anti-poverty agency working in over 40 countries, taking sides with poor people to end poverty and injustice together. They don’t just hand out aid, but work alongside people, and especially women, living in poverty to give them the power and resources to change their own lives – for good. Their vision is a world without poverty and injustice in which every person enjoys the right to a life with dignity. They take a human rights-based approach to development, viewing poverty as a result of violations and exploitation of human rights.

    The Foundation has proudly supported ActionAid Australia to work in conjunction with ActionAid Myanmar in implementing their unique Fellowship approach in communities in Kayah state, training young people to become leaders or “fellows” who live and work with communities to drive change.
