Steamed For A Good Cause


Two senior VCAL students from GOTAFE, Tiahne Ward and Bryce O’Dwyer have taken the lead in running a social enterprise, Dim Sim Wednesdays.
Along with the help of classmates, Tiahne and Bryce are raising funds for the local youth hub ‘The Haven’. 100% of profits are donated to The Haven.
The Haven offers a safe, relaxed space for children and young adults, where they can enjoy a meal, join in activities and receive assistance with their homework.
“We felt The Haven was the perfect organisation to raise funds for; some of our classmates use this service,” explained Tiahne Ward
“It’s such an important place, we want to see it continue to help children and young adults just like us.”
“We’ve been very busy starting the business from scratch and learning heaps of valuable skills along the way. We’re learning about money handling, marketing, designing (students designed the business logo), communications and organisation.”
So far the students have donated over $500 to The Haven, with the aim of raising $1500 by the end of the year.
Dim Sims and cold drinks are available for purchase at GOTAFE’s Fryers Street Campus every Wednesday from 10:00am to 11:30am.
