Abstract:

This report focuses on the learning and development pathways of Aboriginal women and girls aged 0-34 years. It has been prepared by Effective Philanthropy on behalf of the AMP Foundation. The report explores what programs and supports can helpfully be provided to assist Aboriginal women and girls to access education, make a successful transition through school and get the knowledge, skills and qualifications that they need to realise their potential and pursue their life and career goals. It does not cover programs that are targeted at the general Aboriginal population or broader Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal population. It provides a framework, rather than recommendations about what to fund, that philanthropists and policy makers can use to inform their own efforts towards these goals. Throughout the report the term ‘Aboriginal’ is used to refer to people identifying themselves as being of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent. The age range has been selected to include early childhood development, on the basis that it is in that period that children develop the foundation social, literacy and cognitive skills to prepare them for school, the school years and the early post-school transition and career development years. The age range has been extended beyond what would be a more common upper age break of 24 years to 34 years to take into account the fact that many Aboriginal women defer their transition into further study or work until after they have had their family and their children have started (and in some cases completed) school.
