At Anne Street Partners we believe that charity is an integral part of every community. The key objective of charities is to help others- whether it be people, animals or environmental – in a wide variety of ways. For example you can help by providing financial assistance, by improving living conditions, providing medical care, giving aid and much more. A small donation can make a huge difference in another life.

Anne Street Partners charityDonation doesn’t mean money only but your precious time as well. You can volunteer your time, efforts and services in making a great difference in the world. Charity work isn’t so easy. You need passion, willingness, commitment and dedication to get the job done. No matter what it takes, it is ultimately hugely rewarding.

With donating your time, energy and skills, you not only contribute to your community and improve the lives of others, but you improve yourself as well. When someone donates their time, they can give hope, faith and wisdom to those who need it.
There are many reasons to consider volunteering your time & skills with individuals or group of people that are in need of assistance. People do volunteer work to provide assistance to those people who need help, to support a good cause, to enjoy an opportunity to work with like-minded group of people, to make a difference in the world & much more. Volunteering can provide a great boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-satisfaction. Helping others provides you with a sense of accomplishment, pride and identity.

We are so proud at Anne Street Partners of our association with such a wonderful charity who help so many children and young adults in Australia today and across the world.

Perhaps you have heard of the Duke of Edinburgh Award in passing—you know it has something to do with education and children—but what does this award actually do to benefit the children of Australia?

Well, first, let’s look at the Duke of Ed’s goals. This award aims to empower young people in Australia to pursue their dreams through curriculum and programs designed along with each participant.

This puts them on the right track to achieve incredible things further down the road in their lives.

One such opportunity for Duke of Ed participants is a Residential Project that involves traveling someplace new in the world and helping with a community improvement project there. This could involve construction, farming, or other similar activities, but it definitely means an improved sense of self and achievement for all involved!

Another promising aspect of the Duke of Edinburgh Award is the Adventurous Journey (known as the ‘AJ’) which allows participants to bond with their mates—both old and new—while experiencing a new place. Along the way they will learn problem solving skills, perseverance, and gain a cooperative spirit.

However, these things don’t come simply; it will take guts and determination to make it through the AJ. Participants may even surprise themselves at what they can achieve when working together with their mates!

Further, and perhaps most importantly, participants will come back from the AJ with a whole set of new stories, experiences, and a determined spirit that will help them tackle any challenges that come their way for the rest of their lives.

Through the experiences of team work and leadership, the Duke of Ed is such a valuable enrichment program for young people to be a part of.

With Christmas approaching we ask you to please visit their website and find out more about what they do and if you can, please donate to support this fantastic charity – http://www.dukeofed.com.au
