Seedling Fund results announced

10 October 2018

Thank you for supporting your community by voting in the Seedling Fund! We’re excited to announce the results of the community voting with Khalsa Education Society receiving $2,504 and CoderDojo receiving $1,996. 

 

The Seedling Fund is an initiative of Sprout Hub Aurora which reinvests 10c from every dollar spent at the Hub cafe back into community initiatives through local groups and clubs. The two finalists received a base grant of $1000, and community voting help determined how the remaining funds were divided. 

 

The Seedling Fund is aimed at supporting community initiatives, projects and activities that help make Aurora a great place to live. It’s a great opportunity to get involved and learn more about these local groups, as well as the initiatives the Seedling Fund will help support. Stayed tuned for more news of the great initiatives both finalists will be using the funds for.

 

AURORA PUNJABI FUN DAY 
(KHALSA EDUCATION SOCIETY)

Khalsa Education Society aims to provide local Australian Punjabis with a positive and inclusive environment where they learn about Punjabi/Sikh culture and traditions, make friends and be active members of the community. The group also aspires to engage the wider community with the intention of forming friendships and encouraging awareness of the Punjabi culture and traditions. The Seedling Fund will be used to hold an Aurora Punjabi Fun Day, one day community event showcasing the Punjabi culture including traditional performances, music, activities for kids, free turban tying lessons, traditional dress, language and food. The event will be open to all and will be an opportunity for the Wollert/Epping community to come together to have some fun and get to know each other.

 

CREATIVE CODING OPPORTUNITIES FOR KIDS AT CODERDOJO 
(CODERDOJO AT CREEDS FARM LIVING AND LEARNING)

CoderDojo is a free volunteer-run computer programming educational group open to all young people. Based at Creeds Farm Living and Learning, the club assists young people in learning how to write computer code and provides assistance with developing their digital literacy and inclusion. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit CoderDojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment. The CoderDojo group will use the Seedling Fund to provide two laptop computers free of charge to be used at CoderDojo sessions at Creeds Farm, enabling the participation of children who may not ordinarily have access to equipment. The funds will be used to provide gadgets and technology to enhance the learning experience.
