Millie Osti's Fundraiser:

APY Indigenous Youth Program

Our hope is to set up an annual program in a remote South Australian indigenous community in the APY lands, targeted at children and adolescents that integrates principles of health education with enjoyable and engaging cultural, sporting and nutritional activities as a way to encourage social behaviour, alleviate boredom and keep the youth occupied in non-school time.

The primary aims of the program include:
o Provide the community with a service they have expressed need for
o Focus on engaging Aboriginal participants and University students in a cross-cultural learning experience
o Build an ongoing relationship with the community
o Alleviate boredom during the holiday break
o Empower young women
o Encourage healthy lifestyle choices through engaging and interactive activities

Through the Adelaide Medical Students’ Society (AMSS) we have secured funds for the cost of running the start-up pilot program. We believe this program has the opportunity of direct and long-term benefit to the community of Amata as well as providing benefits to medical students through exposure and experience working within disadvantaged indigenous communites. We anticipate that the pilot program will serve as a base for an annual program run in conjunction between the AMSS and ourselves.

In order for our program to be successful, we require additional financial support to allow for our transportation to the community, providing security for the implementation of the program in future years and allowing us to expand and involve a greater number of medical students.

All donations, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated and could make a big difference in the success of our project.

Thank you for your support!
