Alithia’s $60,000 Success

Charity on the Mid North Coast secures $60,000 grant.

 

Alithia has been awarded a $60,000 grant from FRRR (Funding for Rural and Regional Renewal).

 

This competitive round was open to all rural drought effected areas across Australia to help communities access the resources they need to support one another through tough times. 

 

This funding grant will be used to build problem solving and creativity skills for 5-12 year olds, through resources that support children’s development via alternative holistic educational programs.These community-based activities help to relieve current stressors and symptoms and build resilience and capacity for the future.

 

Alithia is a volunteer-run, grassroots organisation, located in Valla, NSW. For the last two years, the charity has been organising qualified mentors to run programs and activities that range from sports and recreation, to arts, culture, education and holistic development.  Alithia has been successfully running a weekly full-day program, with requests to expand to more days and a waiting list of 50 children.

 

This grant will cover a much needed resource shed, with a years supply of resources, and a qualified mentor for two days per week. These additional days will be referred to as the Young Innovators Hub, where children instigate hands-on projects and develop ideas together in a supportive environment. This program is set to kick off in Term 3, 2019.

 

Alithia is currently taking applications to fill this role of mentor/ facilitator/ educator. Submissions close April 30th, with interviews set for May 4th.
