Win Your Way to Making a Difference with Women in Focus
Thursday, 2nd February 2012 at 9:35 am
Thanks to Commonwealth Bank’s Women in Focus Community you can win a $5000, 9-day volunteer and cultural experience to make a difference to the lives of children in a remote Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory.
You will experience authentic local Aboriginal culture as you immerse yourself in teaching Aboriginal children the pleasures of literacy and numeracy.
You will contribute hands on, working ‘with’ the local people to deliver a best practice teaching model to very young bush children. Many of these children have never experienced the joy and wonder of books.
As well as teaching the children you will also get to help ‘coach’ football. The football program, for 6 – 10 year olds is used to improve school attendance and achievement and to promote healthier lifestyles and participation in sport.
This prize is part of the Indi-Kindi program, which aims to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes among 0-5 year old children in remote bush communities. The prize includes the cost of the full Bunji Travel Trip, plus return flights from the winner’s closest capital city, and travel insurance.
Women in Focus have also launched two other competitions – Win $5,000 towards hosting an International Women’s Day event and Global Blogger Search – blog from New York or Mt. Kilimanjaro. If you are interested in these competitions get in quick as theInternational Women’s Day competition closes this Sunday 5th Feb.
The CBA Women in Focus community encourages women to share their personal and business stories to inspire others, celebrate achievement and to reach out and help others. (It’s free for all to join – whatever you do, wherever you bank!)
