What We Do
Returning Opportunity to Indigenous Children
Podmore raises funds and mentors specially-selected Indigenous boys and girls from rural and remote communities and towns, who have received scholarships on merit to some of Australia’s finest independent boarding schools. Podmore assists implementing partner Yalari.
With $5,500 Podmore scholarships to help cover the significant financial gap between the means-tested ABSTUDY scheme and student fees and costs at independent boarding schools. As well, Podmore works closely with parents and guardians to ensure that Podmore scholarship recipients are not alone in meeting the challenges of a boarding school education.
The Podmore Foundation Scholarships
In July 2007 the Podmore Board met with Waverley Stanley, the Founding Director of the Yalari Foundation. They were very impressed with the Yalari story and with the passion, drive and commitment that Waverley himself has for giving indigenous kids hope for a better future and a ‘hand up’ to achieve it. The Podmore Board decided to help Yalari.
