Micah Projects is a social justice initiative in collaboration with St Mary’s Catholic Community, South Brisbane. Micah Projects Inc mission is to respond to people who experience exclusion, poverty, injustice and social isolation so that they may experience inclusion, economic well being, justice and connection within their community of choice. Our hope is to create justice and respond to injustice at the personal, social and structural levels in church and society. We seek to work collaboratively and respectfully with the indigenous community. We embrace our responsibility to redress the dispossession of indigenous people from their land. Click to find out more about Micah Projects

Bring Hope Street Cafe to Hope Street

27 March – 28 April 2017  online campaign www.startsomegood.com/hope-street-café

Micah Projects’ Hope Street Café has been selected as one of four organisations to participate in the 2017 Social Enterprise Design Challenge. The Social Enterprise Design Challenge supports non-profit social enterprises to test and design new concepts for creating sustainable and transformational social change.

Every cent raised will go towards opening the Hope Street Café at Brisbane Common Ground and will strengthen our ability to give more people access to training and employment opportunities through the Hope Street Café training program run in partnership by Micah Projects and TAFE Brisbane QLD.

The English Family Foundation will generously pledge the first 50% of our $30,000 tipping point goal but for Hope Street Café to receive any funding at all, the funds need to be matched by donations from the community. If we are not able to match the funds we will not receive anything.

The campaign opens online at www.startsomegood.com/hope-street-café for one month, from Monday 27 March until 28 April 2017. Please consider making a pledge and help us spread the word!

Help us launch our Crowdfunding Campaign!
