EMPOWERING GIRLS THROUGH EDUCATION
Through a selective scholarship program, HMEF lifts the educational outcomes and career aspirations of high potential girls who are experiencing socio-economic disadvantage.
Scholarship support begins in Year 9 through year 12. The multi-layered program is specifically designed around technology enablement, coaching, tutoring, and financial relief.
We focus on the needs of each recipient to ensure their families, schools, and broader communities can break the cycle of disadvantage and create future family and community leaders through better education outcomes.
When you educate a girl you break the vicious cycle of poverty. Girls supported with equipment, money for resources and tutoring and coaching will be much more likely to complete high school and undertake further education after school.
A girl will earn up to 25% more income for each year of additional education. She is more likely to invest in her children’s education and wellbeing and support their studies.
The education and success of girls will lead to a more prosperous and responsible society. It will also stimulate economic growth. The education can raise families out of poverty, and accelerate economic development.
The Harding Miller Education Foundation is a registered charity in Australia, recognised as a Public Benevolent Institution advancing the cause of education.
Donations are tax deductible with 100% going directly to scholarship recipients.
We don’t just write cheques and hope for the best. We have a multi-layered support system designed to ensure our girls make the most of their scholarships.
