The Outback Spirit Foundation, founded by Juleigh & Ian Robins is endorsed by the ATO as a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) and is committed to making a contribution to breaking the ongoing cycle of poor education, poor health .high unemployment, passive welfare dependence and poverty that typifies the majority of Indigenous Australians.
The Foundation’s strategy is to give Indigenous Australians the opportunity to help themselves to achieve a higher level of economic independence by:
- Establishing sustainable agricultural programs for remote communities that encompass the Indigenous Culture and sense of Country.
- Providing Indigenous youth opportunities to pro-actively contribute to their own future in order to help them avoid the welfare dependence cycle.
The Foundation has secured the necessary financial support for the first stage of its initial agricultural project in the Northern Territory from the Coles Indigenous Food Fund.
The Foundation is now seeking addition financial support to raise AUD 500,000 to establish and develop the projects that are identified in this document. As an endorsed PBI all donations are tax deductible.
