2023 festive appeal

Double the love of learning

Donate now

A year ago, Umar wouldn’t even say hello.

Now he sings, speaks and makes friends.

“Early Start Discovery Space helped my son with his speech delay. He loves the activity so much that he jumps and sings.” - Randi, dad to three-year-old Umar 

Help give a child like Umar a head start in learning, spark their imagination and explore their creativity. Your generosity this festive season will go towards new play-based exhibits at the University of Wollongong’s Early Start Discovery Space.  

When we hit our goal of $250,000, all donations will be matched by the Abbott Foundation – doubling your gift!
