indigo foundation General Appeal


indigo foundation is an innovative and independent community development organisation based in Australia.

Community led and volunteer based, we look at development differently – we commit ourselves to long term respectful partnerships with local grassroots organisations. All support is provided and monitored and evaluated within a framework of four Guiding Principles: community ownership, sustainability, transparency and equity.

Our approach is grounded in an active research agenda. We work with some of the most marginalised communities around the world and we engage with refugee communities in Australia.

We currently support eleven projects across seven countries. Our projects are driven by the communities we work with – and focus on empowerment of women and girls, education, health and building the strength of local organisations. We partner with communities to build schools and increase girls’ access to education in rural Afghanistan, empower Dalit women and children in India to access education and training and support women’s food security through a network of cooperative gardens in Indonesia. Through our respectful work with communities, we have directly changed lives and communities. 

Over the past 17 years we have built a strong reputation for delivering exceptional, cost-effective and transformative results.

We keep overheads low with a virtual office and a lean staffing model. We work hard to always ensure we provide the most accurate information on our finances, achievements and challenges. 

Up-to-date details of all our projects are available on our website at


Please help us raise $83,500 by 30 June 2019 to invest in women and girls, ensuring their right to education, safety and leadership.

It’s an ambitious target – but so are the plans and the capabilities of our community partners. Your donation will mean we can kick off a new partnership in Bougainville and ensure a Safe House for women facing facing violence stays open, build on our proven partnership to keep girls in school in Afghanistan school and scale up leadership and education initiatives led by and benefitting women and girls across our partnerships.

See here for more information about our 2019 tax time appeal.
