PROJECT CHANGE IS A REGISTERED NOT-FOR-PROFIT AUSTRALIAN CHARITY

We are dedicated to educating and empowering women to end the cycle of poverty, abuse and sex trafficking.

Families living in extreme poverty can rarely afford an education for their children.

Parents are forced to allow their daughters to be sold into sex work or exploited and abused in low-paid factory jobs. These communities often have no access to proper food, clean water, medicine or education – and no way of escaping the cycle of poverty.
