Get In the Game Grants

Funder:  Women Sport Australia

 Grant Background: Women Sport Australia and CADBURY share a vision to empower girls and women and to fuel their confidence through movement and connection. The CADBURY Get in the Game Grants will provide girls and women sports uniforms to organisations around Australia.
