I’m heading out to Billiluna as a youth worker on the 10th of November. Billiluna is a remote aboriginal community located in the Tanami desert. Part of my job is running the local youth centre and creating projects for the kids to work on to further their skill set.billi

A project I feel will benefit the community largely is a cafe styled Op shop. With the help from you, Article 1 will be fundraising for donations of clothing and linen which will be donated to the youth centre and used towards the project. Clothes donated through Article 1 will be sold to the people of Billiluna and tourists and stocks will depend on what is donated. We also plan to sell Barista styled coffee alongside the clothes. If the project doesn’t take hold  all donations will be made available to the community.

Billiluna Clothes & Coffee shop will offer a community store and social interaction hub that the local youth have ownership of.

If the project kicks off it will be suggested that all funds raised through the Op shop side will be donated to Empowering International which is a not for profit organisation supporting the kids of Uganda. This raises awareness to the local kids of service towards others. It will create a connection between communities on opposite parts of the world. Expanding their awareness beyond themselves. The youth that decide to get on board will be paid a reasonable wage and obtain valuable skill sets.
