The Big Umbrella is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation and a global community initiative established both within Australia and overseas. The Big Umbrella works with and funds international and local partners to address issues impacting on marginalized youth and children including those affected by human rights abuses, human trafficking, exploitation, forced labour and homelessness.
The Big Umbrella is committed to the principle that children should live free from poverty and exploitation.
We are proud to hold strong partnerships with Child Street To School and The Father Bob Maguire Foundation. Together with these partnerships we have been able to achieve many goals in a short period of time, and confidently set new ones for the future.
The Big Umbrella assists in the sustainable rebuilding and integration of individuals in need within communities, irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.
The main focus of The Big Umbrella (TBU) is on anti-slavery and rehabilitation programs in Nepal. We support vulnerable Nepalese children who have been exposed to the dehumanizing impact of child exploitation that is child trafficking, forced slave labour and homelessness.
The Big Umbrella is a certified Australian charity with DGR status for tax deductibility.
