David Dixon & Chantelle Baxter are founders of One Girl, an organisation which supports women and girls in Sierra Leone with educational scholarships, healthcare and leadership skills to empower them to live a life of their own design. Dissatisfied with the party lifestyle, they both took fascinating journeys to discover where they could make the biggest impact and found it starts with One Girl.

3 years later their ‘Do It In A Dress’ campaign is a wildly successful example of innovative fundraising, they support hundreds of girls in Sierra Leone, have built the ‘Worlds Most Awesome’ toilet and have started a social enterprise supporting low income women through that ‘special’ time of the month.

“When you educate a girl, she’ll change the world. An educated girl is three times less likely to contract HIV / AIDS. She‘ll marry later and have fewer, healthier children. For every extra year of schooling, her income will increase by 10 – 25 percent. Not only that, she’ll reinvest 90 percent of the money she earns back into her family. Educating a girl has a ‘multiplier effect’. An educated girl can change the world.”
What They Do:

David Dixon and Chantelle Baxter founded One Girl focused on empowering women and girls in Sierra Leone \ to create and lead change in their communities through education and economic empowerment. They currently have two projects Back to School Scholarships and LaunchPad.

Sitting on a park bench on a beach side holiday, sisters Rosie & Lucy Thomas developed an idea for a program that develops leadership in young people and tackles the issue of bullying in a positive, and empowering way – for young people BY young people.

PROJECT ROCKIT was launched in 2006 by Rosie and Lucy Thomas, two Melbournian sisters who saw the opportunity to build youth leadership, citizenship and resilience by tackling the issue of bullying in school communities. Through face to face programs in school and online (P-Rock), they build a space where imagination, leadership, creative expression and acceptance are available to all young people, regardless of social labels. PROJECT ROCKIT has now worked with over 40,000* school students and presented at major Australian conferences.

Andie PatchettAn urban housewife reluctantly takes an unexpected phone call from a young man serving a long sentence in prison – they connect over a Ben Harper song and the seeds for social enterprise Five8 were planted.

In this episode Tania speaks to Andie Patchett, co-founder of Five8 and Michael, an ex-offender who credits Five8 with ending his 20 year cycle of re-offending.

Andie and the Five8 team are building a radically different approach to supporting prisoners and ex-offenders in their transition to the outside world by creating a pro-social support network who support inmates before and after their release, through visits, phone calls and advocacy.  They also run a social enterprise training offenders and ex-offenders to make boutique hand sewn products.

Five8 are based in Melbourne, Australia but have programs through out other states.

What Five8 Does: Building pro-social communities around prisoners and ex-prisoners. Advocacy. Social enterprise. Craft.

What You Can Do / What They Need:

Five8 need people with a variety of skills and levels of commitment. We need volunteers to support prisoners before and after their release to empower them in their reintegration into society, nurturers, administrators, networkers, grant writers.  Volunteers are required to attend a Five8 training day.

Donate Goods: We need buttons, zips, fabrics, knitting wool and clean rice or potato hessian sacks. Please email info@five8.org if you can help.

Donate Money: If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Five8 their account details are on their website.

Stock Five8 Products: Five8 wholesales handcrafted scarves, wheat bags and other beautiful hand sewn products to boutiques and stores made by prisoners and ex-offenders. Contact them via email for wholesale inquiries.

Website: www.five8.org

Email: info@five8.org
