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 education, women’s empowerment, 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.

Human Rights Day appeal 2017 - Supporting women's health programs in Rwanda, Uganda and India

Access to basic health information, counselling, testing and medicines is crucial if women are to have control over their lives and their sexual and reproductive health. In the last 12 months, with your support, and at the request of our community partners, we have increased the focus on health in our programs in Rwanda, Uganda and India. And we are seeing impressive results from our community partners who run incredible, and desperately needed, grassroots health programs. 

As we approach Human Rights Day on 10 December, we ask you to please donate and help us raise $19,600 to secure these essential health programs in 2018.
