Why not make your school supplies count for something more? By purchasing products from Yoobi Australia, you become part of Yoobi’s "Buy One, Give One" campaign, which sees hundreds of classroom supplies donated to support World Vision’s early childhood programs in Indigenous Australian communities. Together, we’re committed to closing the gap on Indigenous disadvantage and supporting children to learn, grow and thrive.
Across Australia, World Vision works in partnership with local Indigenous communities to support positive wellbeing outcomes for children and their families. Our Early Childhood Care and Development Program supports Indigenous Australian children, their families and remote communities to realise early childhood developmental outcomes through community-driven initiatives that encourage and foster young children’s both-ways development. Both-ways development sees both mainstream and Indigenous learning complementing and strengthening one another, reflecting community desire for children to thrive in a diverse range of environments.
World Vision’s early childhood program currently works across 10 communities in the West Kimberley, East Pilbara and Central Australian regions. Young children and their families in these regions often experience significant barriers to accessing quality, culturally strong early learning services. Many young children are considered developmentally vulnerable and are already at a disadvantage when they start school.
World Vision is typically invited by communities to support them to establish a quality, culturally strong early childhood service for their children. Our long-term objective is to walk with the community using an empowering, strengths-based approach where young children are learning, parents are better equipped to be their child’s first teacher, local women are trained and employed, and community members are coming together to make decisions that affect young children in their community.
Since early 2018, World Vision has partnered with Yoobi Australia to deliver colourful stationery and learning resources to playgroups in Derby and Newman – two remote communities located along the Gibb River Road in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Yoobi’s bright and colourful classroom packs have brought excitement and happiness to local Indigenous children, helping to encourage playgroup attendance and engagement in learning activities. As six-year-old Rohannah exclaims, “I will use the Yoobi kit every day. I love it!”
You buy. Yoobi gives. It’s that simple!
For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi school item is donated to a classroom in need, including those supported by World Vision’s early childhood program.
Yoobi Australia products are available for purchase on their website or through nationwide stockists. With your support, our partnership will continue to deliver much-needed resources to Indigenous Australian children, helping them to learn, grow and thrive.
