Great News! In the last two weeks, we’ve raised the funds for our matching grant of $30,000.
That means we’ve raised $60,000 towards our Courage Appeal. Thank you to our generous ‘matching’ donor
and to everyone who has donated so far to the COURAGE Appeal.

What does COURAGE mean to you?

At Blue Dragon, children in crisis face this question every day

They need COURAGE

COURAGE to give up their meagre life on the streets

COURAGE  to flee from traffickers

COURAGE to recover from terrible abuse

For every dollar donated…

Safe Homes

The COURAGE Appeal project has been guided, designed and produced by our kids!

Over the last few months, Blue Dragon kids have been exploring the idea of ‘courage’ with their social workers. We were overwhelmed with the ideas they came up with: from having the courage and confidence to talk in front of a group to stories of extreme bravery after experiencing abuse and violence. There were many difficult memories. There were also strong feelings of joy and triumph as the kids developed their own stories.
