Apart from having lots of fun, the purpose of the Broadening Horizons program is to give young women from Bidwill and the Mt Druitt area access to supportive, trusting mentors and transformative experiences that will strengthen and equip them for the rest of their lives — opportunities that they otherwise may not have access to.

Together we will learn and improve on many skills: communication, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, leadership and achieve not only the program goals but our own personal goals too.

It costs $3,200 for each girl to experience the challenge and beauty of the Overland Track in Tasmania.

This includes training walks, airfare, hiking boots, tent, clothing, sleeping bag, cooking Trangia, fuel, food and other essential items. We cannot do this without your support. Please help us get Shania, Bethany, Shanieka, Chevae, Leah and Brieanna to Tasmania.
