Cathy Freeman Foundation
The Cathy Freeman Foundation (CFF) helps Indigenous children experience their potential in school, and beyond.
CFF acknowledges the strength and wisdom that lies within remote Indigenous communities and partners with community and school leaders to help build education pathways that work.
CFF currently works with three remote Indigenous communities:
· Palm Island in northern Queensland since 2007
· Wurrumiyanga on Bathurst Island in the Northern Territory since August 2014
· Woorabinda in central Queensland since October 2014
The Foundation delivers five programs that travel the journey of a child’s education from Pre Prep through to Year 12. The programs help broaden horizons and focus on improving school attendance, behaviour and literacy . They are also designed to help inspire children to realise their own gold medal journey. Community and school partners value the positive impact of CFF’s work, and appreciate its collaborative approach and long term commitment to community.
Vision: An Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life.
Mission: To help Indigenous children experience their full potential in school, and beyond.
Purpose: To close the education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children, and provide pathways to a brighter future.
