NCJWA (VIC)


Please support NCJWA (Vic) and help power more women and girls 

Your generous gift can have a real influence on the lives of vulnerable women and girls in the Jewish and broader community.

Jam Project: 
Recruit, train and supervise more Jam Buddies so that we can offer our Year 9 girls mentoring program to more schools to help girls navigate the stresses of adolescence. We want to help girls become stronger. 

Advocacy: 
Continue our advocacy work campaigning for the voices of women and girls to be heard on issues of gender equality, gett refusal and family law reform. 

Caring Mums: 
Train and supervise more Caring Mum volunteers to support new mothers from across Melbourne from a range of cultural backgrounds experiencing isolation, depression and anxiety. We are currently expanding the reach of Caring Mums into Kingston and Yarra.

Seniors: 
Continue to run weekly gatherings that provide social connection for elderly people, both Holocaust survivors and those from the former Soviet Union, living in the community. These gatherings provide an opportunity to come together in a safe environment and connect with their Jewish identity. Your support shows these people that someone cares about them. 

“We like coming here to socialise with old and new friends, to meet members of the local Jewish community and be able to speak Yiddish. As migrants, it feels welcoming when people show us kindness. It is this show of warmth and generosity that makes us feel part of the community.” 
— Russian Seniors Club Member

“I have been so well supported by my volunteer, who has been consistently caring, empathetic, nurturing and non-judgmental. She has listened, provided encouragement, and given me a safe space to explore my feelings & experiences. No one else has been able
to provide this for me...”
— New Mum

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to engage a new age of incredible young women while uniting with the strengths and knowledge of other generations to help better the lives and self-worth of many, and to create future leaders in our community,” 
— Young Ambassador

Please support our End of Financial Year Campaign to ensure that women and girls receive the support they need.  

Every dollar counts!

Thank you for your generous support
