Our Foundation is part of the ‘Friends of VSN’ network, which includes partner organisations in New Zealand, the USA, and Ireland, all run by ex-VSN volunteers who support the organisation by acting as conduits for donations in their home countries. This network of partners allows maximum funding to reach VSN and the children within their care.

By directing funds to one central place within each country, VSN receives scheduled transfers of donations, which in turn reduces the international bank transfer fees associated with each transaction.

Our annual fundraising target is AUD$10 000. All proceeds go directly to VSN for the upkeep of the children across their two homes and allocation against priority projects, such as their current permanent home build for the children of Shining Stars Children’s Home.
