A radical new approach to addressing extreme disadvantage in Australia.
Children’s Ground arose from the ambition of Aboriginal people committed to changing their future – where people want their kids ‘strong both ways’ – strong in the oldest living culture in the world, and fully engaged in the Western world.
Led by the communities we work with, we celebrate the extraordinary depth and sophistication of First Nations knowledge, capture local ability, and bring the scale and quality of resources needed for kids to have the very best in learning, well-being and development.
Our vision is for the next generation to have amazing opportunities to celebrate their social, cultural, educational, health and economic well-being.
Children’s Ground CEO Jane Vadiveloo has been recognised for her ground breaking work in the Not-for-Profit sector and was recently awarded as a winner in the Philanthropy category of the Westpac Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence 2014.
