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 18 community partners across eight 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 19 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 $22,300 by 31 December 2019 to protect and defend the rights of female headed households in Indonesia.  

Your donation will support the vital work that our partner PEKKA Lodan Doe in Eastern Indonesia. 

Your support will mean that our partners at PEKKA Lodan Doe will be able to meet the urgent and growing needs of female-headed households in 2020. It will mean PEKKA can expand their bursary program so girls and young women can stay in school. And it will mean that they can supercharge their network of women-run cooperative gardens – growing more food and generating more income from their gardens.

This work is core to defending the human rights of women and children in very challenging circumstances.
