Community

We are proud to support our community, great local events and the following worthwhile causes.

 

WALAMA MURU

Walama Muru is a volunteer run program partnered with UNSW student organisation Arc, that aims at connecting both indigenous and non-indigenous students, communties and cultures through the development of respect and understanding. 

Each year volunteers travel to regional Indigenous communities to build on closer cultural ties whilst providing opportunites to develop skills in leadership, management, organisation, cross-cultural communications and raising awareness around Indigenous issues both within UNSW and surrounding communities. 

HEALTHY 'KIDS FOR KIDS' MEALS



Each week we deliver Healthy Children Meals to local schools – including Coogee Public School, St Brigid's and until recently, Malabar Public School. The concept is ‘kids feeding kids’, and all proceeds go directly to Communities Assist for our children in Africa. Through this campaign, we along with the help of our local schools have raised over $40k for the Kili Kids in Tanzania. Get involved today by emailing us at barzura@barzura.com.au

COMMUNITIES ASSIST

Communities Assist Australia facilitates projects in developing countries which provide education and training to create sustainable and productive functional living environments. While Communities Assist Australia feeds, houses, schools and provides medical care for AIDS orphans in Tanzania they are also helping raise awareness about how the AIDS epidemic has had a devastating effect on families globally.

At 2009’s ‘Colour the World’ charity night held at Barzura we helped raise over $22,000 to support this great cause. We offer CA ethical gift vouchers at Christmas time, run the healthy kids meals program and make regular donations to support the cause.

SALVATION ARMY

Every Christmas we organise a "Reversed Christmas Tree", inviting our customers to drop off wrapped items for children in need during winter which are given the Salvation Army.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

Every year, we host an International Women's Day event with the THP Haircutters team- Cocktails for a Cause. 100% of proceeds goes directly towards the charity of choice for the event.

Last year (2016) year attendees enjoyed breakfast and Bellinis, as well as an inspirational presentation by Kath and Kim from the Possibility Project. On the day we raised approximately $7,000 which will go directly towards the Possibility Project's Sparrow Sanitation program - a collaborative program with Jaipur based charity I-India. Thank you to all those who came and supported the event, the Barzura crew for hosting, Mari & Regina for their initiative, as well as Kath & Kim for their inspirational presentation.

 

EARTH HOUR

'Barzura by Candlelight' takes place each year for Earth Hour to generate awareness about climate change and the impact humans have on the environment.

OZ HARVEST

Prior to closing shop for 2015 renovations, Barzura donated all of the left over food supplies to this wonderful local organisation, Oz Harvest. 'Nourishing our country.' Barzura continues to offload excess food supplies to Oz Harvest, and it feels great to know our beautiful fresh produce is going to a good home for a good cause! www.ozharvest.org

A SOUND LIFE

A Sound Life charity, founded by Edo & Jo (pictured) is a grassroots local charity that Barzura supports, bringing free music and yoga to those in need. They harness the skills of musicians, yoga teachers and kind-hearted volunteers who are passionate about giving back to our community and enrich the lives of those in need. A Sound Life services a range of healthcare facilities (hospitals, aged-care, disabilities, mental health) and vulnerable communities. www.asoundlife.org
