Cathy Freeman Foundation
The Cathy Freeman Foundation aims to close the education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian children - because all kids deserve the same opportunities in life.
We work in partnership with the wonderful community of Palm Island - one of the largest and remote Indigenous communities in Australia. Working together with the two schools on Palm Island, the counil, parents/carers and the wider community, our five programs aim to increase overall educational outcomes, including literacy rates, school attendance and classroom behaviour.
