In 2018, Kate decided to make a trip to the slums of Nairobi with ERFA’s Gone Fishing immersion program. She was incredibly moved by what she saw,

“It came as a real shock … The desperate need was overwhelming.”

When she returned to Melbourne, Kate was determined to do something. Her colleagues were moved by her passion and keen to support too.

Working with a fellow attendee from her immersion, Paul Colvin from Paywise Salary Packaging, Kate developed a plan to offer her colleagues the opportunity to make a modest tax-free donation each pay cycle and Ascot Group’s workplace giving program was born.

Kate describes it as;

“an easy process with hardly any work required and with the salary packaging service offered for free it’s working well”.

Kate’s made real change and her successful giving program is now providing liberating education in Kenya

Joining this program has positively impacted my life and I know it will help many to come.
