The human history of Australia is more than 65,000 years old. It’s a history that all Australians should recognize, be proud of, and know. Our mission is to help young Australians connect with that heritage – a heritage that is largely Indigenous.
The Grow Hope Foundation provides Indigenous educational programs and learning experiences that help young Australians learn about, understand, and connect with, our 65,000 year old human history. We provide schools with Indigenous Leaders who help guide and mentor both students and staff in Indigenous learning. We conduct school incursion programs offering students and staff an opportunity to experience and participate in aspects of Indigenous culture. We also offer opportunities to visit with Indigenous communities to experience and participate in Indigenous culture on country.
The Grow Hope Foundation acknowledges Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to Elders, both past and present.
"Growing Together" program
In partnership with Wanyara, the Grow Hope Foundation conducts school incursion programs offering students and staff an opportunity to experience and participate in aspects of Indigenous culture. An incursion can cost as little as $500. By donating $500 and nominating a school, you are giving the students at that school an opportunity to learn about our 65,000 year history and our Indigenous people an opportunity to share their culture and wisdom.
