The Ebenezer Aboriginal Corporation received a boost this month with the donation of much-needed computer equipment, thanks to National building construction and civil engineering company Georgiou Group.
As part of Georgiou’s commitment to walk together as equals – in line with their Reconciliation Action Plan – the company donated 20 laptop computers and surface pros to the not-for-profit organisation.
Ebenezer has provided accommodation support for at-risk youth for more than 50 years. Over time, they have expanded their service to provide a range of other supports to clients this includes: Accommodation Support, Vocational Training Employment Centre, In-Home support to Aboriginal families and the Target 120 program provides support to young people and families.
General Manager Simon Welfare said the donation will be used to support a range of programs and families.
“As a company, we remain committed to engaging with the community to strengthen relationships with Indigenous Australians, demonstrate respect and provide mutually beneficial opportunities,” he said.
“Every few years, we upgrade our IT equipment and wanted to use this as an opportunity to engage a not-for-profit organisation who could really benefit from the donation. Georgiou and Ebenezer share a lot of similarities in our approach to development and empowering our people to grow and reach their full potential.
“It’s our hope that this small donation will equip young Aboriginal Australians and their families with the tools to assist in their growth and development.”
