Leader. Entrepreneur. Changemaker. 

Three words that describe Tarsini today. But it hasn’t always been this way.

For years, Tarsini lived in extreme poverty, having to borrow from moneylenders in her Indonesian village to support her family. But the interest rate was high and her family was trapped in constant debt.  

Through the generosity of Caritas Australia supporters, Tarsini was able to turn her life around. She now uses her newfound skills to help other women in her community. 

You can help fund programs that give women the opportunity to be financially independent and empower communities. Give now to provide life-changing support to vulnerable women worldwide. 

Your support today can help women like Tarsini with:

Entrepreneurship and business management training

Bookkeeping and financial literacy classes  

Sustainable building of household utilities for sanitation and hygiene

Domestic violence shelters and emergency accommodation
