As Neora expands its global footprint, the Neora Ripple Foundation will also grow in order to Make People Better in new parts of the world. For Australia, we have chosen to partner with Big Brother Big Sisters Australia (BBBSA) to provide support that aligns with our corporate core values and to give Brand Partners a path to show the loving, caring, and sharing core of our company.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia
BBBSA provides vulnerable children (ages 7 to 17) with a strong, enduring, professionally supported mentoring relationship that positively changes lives – two people at a time. In this environment of fun and mutual trust, we open a new world of possibilities, break cycles of disadvantage and create a ripple effect of change.
Internationally over 390,000 children in 14 countries are mentored by a Big Brother or Big Sister. In Australia, BBBSA mentored 1,220 vulnerable kids last year and plans to increase this to 2,000 children over the next 12 months. Mentoring does not just have one impact. Research indicates a long-term mentoring match can positively impact up to 10 others when you include family, siblings, peers and friends.
Each time a child is matched with a mentor something incredible starts – a life changing relationship built on friendship, trust, guidance and empowerment.
Neora’s Chief Leadership Officer Renee Olson volunteers her time and love with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program as a mentor or ‘Big Sister’ to Ryan. Ryan, Renee and Ryan’s mother Tanesha share their experience in the program.
