Project details

Who will benefit from this project?



How will the funding be spent?

The funds will be spent to run three bus services and provide subsidized accommodation for remote women from Western Eyre Peninsula, the Far North and Kangaroo Island to assist them attend "Thriving Women 2018, A conference to connect and advance Agri-women". For women to attend the conference from these remote areas of South Australia will be significantly more expensive than for women within 2 hours of the venue at Hahndorf and Partners in Grain doesn't want this to hinder their involvement.

How will the project be delivered?

The conference, bus service and subsidized accommodation will be promoted through local community networks that Partners in Grain have in the three identified regions and as apart of normal conference promotion. When women register for the conference they will also need to register for the bus service and accommodation subsidy.

How many people will directly benefit from this project?

65 women will directly benefit from the project. The communities that the women come from will indirectly benefit from their involvement in the conference.

How will you measure the impact of this project?

The impact of the project will be measured by a survey of the women before and after the conference. Two case studies of women that have attended the conference will also be developed as a part of measuring the project impact.

How will the project fit this year's theme of ‘Connect, Grow, Build, Belong’?

The Fund My Community Theme of Connect, Grow, Build, Belong aligns with the objectives of the "Thriving Women 2018" conference. This project will assist women from remote communities to participate in the conference and connect with women from their community , grow their skills, build their knowledge and gain a sense of belonging to a network of agri-women from across South Australia. The project will reduce the disadvantage that women from remote locations experience due to where they live.
