WA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year 2019

The Graham (Polly) Farmer Foundation

In 1994 a group of people inspired by Graham (Polly) Farmer set up a foundation to establish and manage after school education support projects for Indigenous students who want to complete their secondary education and achieve tertiary/TAFE admission, or an apprenticeship/traineeship.

The Foundation now coordinates more than 40 primary and secondary school projects across Australia, each tailored to suit an Indigenous community. The community members and the local context are essential drivers of each project.

The work of The Graham (Polly) Farmer Foundation is based on a coordinated model of community development. The Foundation coordinates the actions of all other parties and provides a central point for funding and program management from private donors, governments, community interests and other stakeholders.

The Foundation has developed a model for managing the projects which includes a steering committee of project partners who have responsibility to set the strategic direction.
