Reflection is such a valuable exercise. ERFA has recently undertaken an in-depth process of reflection to look back on how far we have come and to take stock of the achievements of our amazing programs around the world. It is startling to think that ERFA had its inception in 2011, meaning that this year is our 10th anniversary!

In 2011 we contributed A$1.3 million to development projects and, as we approach the end of 2021, we are on track to funding more than A$22 million to programs over our 10 years of operation. This has resulted in empowerment and advancement for hundreds of thousands of people and has been made possible through the incredible support of the wider Australian Edmund Rice community. Our main goal will always be to provide education to the disadvantaged and to support sustainable community-based education programs in developing countries and projects for the marginalised and disadvantaged groups in Australia.

To share in this success and to view the full 10-year timeline of our organisation, read our Annual  Report at
