Women and adolescent girls appreciate the common dignity of a bra for school, work, sport and social occasions.
Since 2005, Uplift has sent over two million bras wherever women have requested them. Their work has been assisted by the involvement of a wide range of business and community groups. Uplift tries to ensure that bras get to the women who need them without compromising their dignity. They have sent bras to Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Cook Islands, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Philippines, Bali, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Botswana, Uganda and Pakistan, the outback of Australia and to projects and schools in need in New Zealand.
Each year at Carmel College we support the Uplift project. Please take the opportunity to donate to this project. A box will be in the front office from now until the end of Term 3. Please check out the following link for information about what can be donated https://www.projectuplift.org.nz/helpful-tools/ and bring any items into school.
