Partnership helps to educate Coffs girls
BPW Coffs Harbour has supported the education of women and girls in our community from our inception 46 years ago. In those early years, the financial and mentoring support came because of the direct observation from our school teacher members who saw the difference education made in the lives of the girls they taught.
What these women observed is now common knowledge through surveys conducted over these past years. Australia is a supporter of the Global Education Partnership with aid payments in the vicinity of nearly half a billion dollars since 2009.
One of the pillars of the partnership is about educating girls.
To find out more about this partnership, check out the website globalpartnership.org.
Locally, BPW Coffs Harbour, through the two tertiary scholarships we award annually, has seen the difference this has made for young women who need that little extra monetary assistance to realise their dream of assisting others through nursing, midwifery, education and psychology.
All are invited to the BPW Scholarship Dinner on Tuesday, June 12 at the Sawtell Golf Club from 6pm when we will award our two scholarships. To book, go to Sticky Tickets and search for BPW Scholarship Dinner or email us at coffs firstname.lastname@example.org.
