Getting Involved with Gondwana Choir
Your kind donation goes towards assisting Gondwana Choirs to carry on providing life-changing openings to many young persons in Australia through:
- Bursaries which are accorded to young Australians who are economically, socially or physically disadvantaged through amazing social, educational and musical opportunities by the Gondwana National Choirs and the Sydney Children's Choir.
- Accessibility is a core Gondwana Choirs value, desiring to make sure that not one child that is enthusiastic and suitably talented gets excluded from the Choirs programs because of geographical or financial constraints.
- Gondwana Choirs bursary recipients are numerous and include choristers who are hailing from regional and rural Australia, especially those whose families may have been negatively impacted by floods, drought, and increased fuel and food prices. Other beneficiaries are families with a single source of income, families touched by tragedy or those who are dependent on government support.
