WHAT IS WALK FOR WAGEC?
Walk for WAGEC is our annual fundraiser, raising money so that women and children can walk away from violence.
In 2023 we raised $380,000 which has been used to help deliver crucial programs for women that:
- Build financial independence
- Nurture healing and well-being
- Enrich children’s development
- Prevent violence from happening in the first place
WHO IS WAGEC?
Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a feminist, grassroots organisation that supports women and families in crisis and advocates for social change in the community. We are based in Redfern, Sydney and work on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation.
Every night, we support 200 women and children impacted by homelessness, domestic violence and social disadvantage. We do this by providing material aid, case management, biopsychosocial support, accommodation and crisis responses. Equally we seek to address the underlying causes of gender-based violence through primary prevention activities with communities and private and public entities that want to be a part of the global movement to end gender-based violence in a generation.
