The McGrath Foundation started with Jane and Glenn McGrath’s very public experience with breast cancer, and has become one of Australia’s most recognised and respected charities.
We raise funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, and seek to increase awareness about breast health.

Projects Abroad has spent over 25 years helping volunteers and interns fulfil their potential and make the world a better place. In the days before the internet, smart phones and budget airlines, an English University Professor and some overseas colleagues had an idea: What if young people could become international volunteers? They could learn new skills and contribute to communities at the same time. That was over 25 years ago and we’ve never looked back. While plenty of other companies have followed where we lead, we’re still the gold standard in international volunteering and internships. Every Project is built on our commitment of: safety, hassle-free travel and making a real impact. Our staff are all either in-country locals who we train and support, or ex-volunteers, who have been there, experienced the projects and seen what a difference they make. Our plans for the future are big. We believe that international volunteering and internships provide a defining experience for...

Who we are:
Robogals is made possible by our amazing volunteers from universities and young professionals of all genders. We come from a wide range expertise from engineering to law to commerce and are all united under the cause of gender equity in engineering and technology. What we do:
Chapters run engineering and technology workshops free-of-charge in their local communities, focusing on encouraging girls from primary to secondary school to explore an interest, as well as cultivate self-confidence, in these areas. Introducing female engineering students to girls at a young age also provides visibility to female role models, of which there is a significant deficit in the STEM field. The lack of relatable role models has been identified as a cause of low uptake for minorities in all professional and academic fields. Regional initiatives such as The Robogals Challenge (EMEA) and Pathways Into Engineering (APAC) provide engagement outside of our workshops. These programs...
