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

APPEAL - Human Rights Day 2018

10 December is Human Rights Day. It's a day we celebrate here at indigo foundation. And this month we are reflecting on the horrendous human rights abuses that Dalit communities face on a daily basis in India - and the incredible work our community partners are doing in India to beat the statistics.

Please consider making a donation to our Human Rights Day appeal. We need your support to raise $21,600 by 31 December to back the important work our partners are doing to ensure Dalit communities, particularly women and children, have access to education, health and human rights protection in 2019
