DECJUBA FOUNDATION X ST KILDA MUMS
April 29th, 2022
DECJUBA Foundation is committed to supporting St Kilda Mums over the next five years to reach every Victorian child that needs them and extend the reach of their services to communities across Australia.
DECJUBA Foundation will also be the presenting partner at the Annual St Kilda Mums Mother's Day Lunch.
Established in 2009, St Kilda Mums aim to raise funds and redistribute pre-loved items to children to ensure a safe start to life. Instead of being discarded, prams, cots, clothes, and essential items are donated to St Kilda Mums to then be rehomed to families in need.
As an eco-conscious not-for-profit organisation, St Kilda Mums is dedicated to ensuring minimal impact on the environment by reducing waste. This is done by extending the lifecycle of kids’ essential goods through repair and reuse.
The attachment between a child and their primary carer in the first 2000 days of life influences long-term health, development and resilience. If there is economic, psychological or physical distress, the ability to develop a connection is at risk. St Kilda Mums relieve these pressures and create opportunities for every child to feel secure, safe and to thrive.
“We have recently launched our new strategic plan which focuses on reaching every child up to the age of 6 in Victoria who needs us. Coupled with a renewed commitment to environmental sustainability and ambitious goals to expand beyond Victoria, DECJUBA Foundation’s commitment means we can establish long term programs.”
Gill Whelan, Senior Partnerships & PR Manager
“I will always be enormously grateful for the support of St Kilda Mums. At a very dark time in my life, they showed me the love and compassion I desperately needed. It made me realise that even though I felt alone, I never was - these amazing people all had mine and my daughter's back. It gave me the courage and determination to get back on my feet and become part of the cause, so the next person like me may realise it's OK to need a little help sometimes.”
“At DECJUBA we are long time supporters of St Kilda Mum's. We are so excited to announce our five-year commitment to their 2030 strategy. Through this partnership, their services will continue to reach more children and communities across Australia.”
Tania Austin, Founder & CEO DECJUBA
