“ALONE WE CAN DO SO LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO
MUCH”- HELEN KELLER
How we became Angels Community Group.
Angels Community Group was only a dream
in 2015, after a death in the family and losing
a job after 20 years our founders Sue Tasker
and Kerri Savidge dreamt of creating a place
that would help others while helping
We started as solely a training organisation,
conducting Work For The Dole programs.
One of the programs was to fit out a store,
and Second 2 None was born, our first Social
Enterprise. The charity work soon followed.
As Second 2 None was growing, our
customers started asking for clothes and
food assistance. The community cupboard
was created to help those asking for food.
We were passionate about helping the
community but needed funds to do it. We
saw a huge need for low cost groceries.
That is when Angels Mini Mart began
business, we brought low cost groceries to
Bundaberg in high volume. Local bakeries
and farms jumped on board and soon we
were giving out free bread and fresh produce
daily. After one year we had out grown out
little store and taken over next door and
more then doubled in size.
Our social enterprises have exploded and
become busy little stores and cafes full of
customers. We have volunteers, trainees and
staff serving the community 6 days a week.
Our charity work has expanded to 12
different sectors with a huge focus on food
insecurity. We were bursting at the seams in
our two stores so we have expanded and
moved all our charity work into Angels
Support Centre, giving it it’s own space and
attention it deserves.
Keep dreaming it.
We have rapidly grown in 5 years, beyond
our wildest dreams, however as we grow so
do our dreams. We want to keep expanding,
keep reacting to the needs of our community
and grow more relationships with locals,
business’ and organisations. Watch this
How do we support them?
Kirkland Renovations have teamed up with Angels Community Group to help serve the community. Donate-able materials that are de-fitted and returned to the Kirkland Renovations warehouse for collection by Angels Community Group. These items will be available to the community to purchase through various outlets organized by Angels Community Group. We love this win/win, with reducing items going into landfill
Peter Sewakiryanga and his wife Joeline are tireless advocates for the criminalisation of child sacrifice in Uganda. Peter is a pastor and an accountant, passionate about improving the standard of living for children and their families in Kyampisi.
As well as pastoring a church, Peter oversees Kyampis childcare ministries.
The focus of the organization is to:
We provide educational opportunities for the underprivileged and most vulnerable. Our school has a 92% pass rate which is the best performance in the region for the past three years.
We offer affordable and accessible child and maternal healthcare services. In addition to healthcare, we help provide fresh water to more than 3,000 people in the Kyampisi village.
We rescue children from human trafficking and child sacrifice, and place them in to educational programs with the ultimate goal of reuniting them with their family and loved ones.
How do we support them?
We sponsor two girls, Esther 10 and Yvonne, 12.
Our mission - one chippy:one child that every one carpenter we employ, we will sponsor one child.
We receive letters from them often about how they enjoy learning at school and express their gratitude to us.
