The Follow Your Dream Foundation – Australia


Formed as a trust for charitable purposes on 9 July 2013 very soon after International President Barry Palmer was sworn into that position with an aim to help disadvantaged Women and Children.

The objectives of the foundation are to support women and children both here and overseas particularly in the areas of education and employment.

The Follow Your Dream Foundation – Australia” is to provide financial assistance for educational opportunities to disadvantaged students to enable them to achieve their full potential and in turn to give back to the Community. The assistance can take many forms like health, education and income generation.

The Foundation received $100000 from Lions Clubs International Multiple District 201, Australia through the chairman Barry Palmer. Several other fund raising nights were organized by the Sydney Inner West Lions Club to help establish the Foundation financially.

The Foundation is sponsoring children to a school camp in South Australia and is supporting a children feeding program in India.

The Foundation has a Board of Trustees that oversees the running of the Foundation.

A recognition program has now been developed to encourage individuals, groups of people, Lions Clubs, NGO’s etc. to support the program financially. In the future we will be looking at Donors visiting the projects with us to assist with the work in the village.
