Partner Highlights - March 2023

Partnerships and philanthropy are critical for the ongoing sustainability of SisterWorks social enterprise services and vocational training programs. From grants to hiring our services, philanthropic and business partnerships directly support our vision that all migrant, refugee and asylum-seeking women are economically empowered.

Mobile Hub Grant - Wyndham City Council

SisterWorks has received a $40,000 grant from Wyndham City Council to deliver the first ever Employment Pathways Program Mobile Hub in the council. With the upcoming 2026 Commonwealth Games hosted throughout regional Victoria, this Mobile Hub is a significant stepping stone in helping our Sisters in this region secure employment opportunities.

Holiday Inn - Speakers and Employment

Holiday Inn team members, Pete, Myrla and Grace were guest speakers at SisterWorks Hospitality Program at our Dandenong Hub.

Sisters learned of current vacancies across Holiday Inn’s Housekeeping, Front Desk, and Food & Beverage departments, before applying for roles and participating in interviews.

SisterWorks is excited to announce that several of our Sisters Mary Jane, Salimah and Kapineta were employed to work at the new Holiday Inn in Dandenong, with training starting in March. 

Northlink - Jayco

Through our partners at Northlink our Warehousing Sister Aida completed a 5-day paid training course at SkillsInvest. 

Aida’s hard work and enthusiasm caught the attention of potential employer Jayco, and she has recently been hired to be a Production Assembler.

Loved and Shared

Loved & Shared continues to engage SisterWork production hub to manufacture goods for families experiencing hardship.  This month,our Sisters produced 178 toiletry and toy bags for distribution.

Loved & Shared is a nonprofit organisation established to create meaningful social and environmental impact across South West Victoria. Their mission is built on the premise that ‘it takes a village to raise a child.’ They come together as a community to gift and rehome high-quality donated nursery and children’s goods to families experiencing hardship.

Keolis Downer engaged SisterWorks to produce coasters as a gift for  the Victorian Chamber of Commerce Grand Prix Breakfast. These coasters feature the artistic rendering of the SisterWorks Tram. We’re grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Keolis Downer and promote our mission through their event.
