Alannah & Madeline Foundation
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is a national charity keeping children safe from violence and bullying.
The Foundation was set up in memory of Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, who were tragically killed with their mother and 32 others at Port Arthur, Tasmania, on 28 April 1996. Since the organisation was established in 1997 the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has reached more than 2 million children and their families nationwide.
The Foundation’s key objectives are to care for children who have experienced or witnessed serious violence; reduce the incidence of bullying, cyber bullying and other cyber risks; and, advocate for the safety and well-being of children.
The Foundation’s programs are in one-third of all Australian schools, more than two-thirds of all Australian public libraries (reaching all 1,500 within the next three years) and support 10,000 children in refuges or foster homes across Australia every year.
