Support The Girls aims to empower women with dignity and respect one bra at a time. Support The Girls recognises that homeless and disadvantaged women from all cultures across Australia are in need of bras and personal hygiene products. With a primary focus on providing bras, they fit women face to face, and actively listen to these women to discover their individual needs and to ensure they are connected to relevant, necessary services.
Brava staff volunteer to provide bra fitting assistance at Bra Gifting Days run by Support The Girls in Melbourne and Sydney. We also provide a range of bras and sports bras to Support The Girls in order to help them provide disadvantaged women in Australia with access to bras.
Uplift Bras provide bras to women living in disadvantaged communities where a bra is often unobtainable or unaffordable. Women feel a tremendous obligation to meet the needs of their families first, with their number one priority of spending being to provide food and education to their children. For many women in these communities, purchasing themselves a bra can be seen as an unforgivable sin. The women who receive bras have often never owned a bra, or they have had poor experiences with the limited styles and sizes accessible in the Pacific Islands, with no access to maternity and mastectomy bras at all.
Brava provides a range of bras and sports bras to Uplift Bras in order to give women in the Pacific Islands the opportunity to own a well-fitting, supportive bra.
