RELEDEV: Celebrating 25 Years! EOFY Appeal

posted in: News | 0

Dear Reledev friends,

In 2019 Reledev marks a very special year: 25 years since its establishment. I ask that, as the end of financial year approaches, you consider donating to our end of financial year appeal. Your continued financial support will foster our vision for the dignity of each person to be upheld through education, work and a spirit of service.

In the coming year, we are committed to the growth of projects in Bolivia, Philippines and Nicaragua. Work camps and service projects will take volunteer students to rural NSW and countries such as Vanuatu, Tonga and the Philippines.

Locally; Reledev’s DREAM Project (Developing, Rebuilding, Educating And Mentoring) continues to grow in providing life skills and mentoring programs in Western Sydney to refugees resettling in Australia.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible. I ask in particular for your assistance with monthly donations by direct debit. Donate by the 30thof June to claim your tax deduction this financial year.

Visit the Reledev website (http://www.reledev.org.au) for details on local and overseas projects and how you can donate.

Sincerely,

Agnes Barnard 

Chair, Reledev Board of Directors

 

How far will your dollar go?

$50 will train a person with disability in the Philippines in technical skills such as cooking and bakery, so that they can begin a livelihood.

$100 trains a woman in Bolivia or Nicaragua in cookery, dressmaking or business skills development.

$150 will assist volunteers to build infrastructure such as sanitation facilities (toilets, showers) and school buildings, as well as providing educational initiatives in the Asia Pacific.

$200 will contribute towards academic coaching, mentoring and skills for life programs for newly settled refugees in Australia.
