Fight homelessness one cup at a time

GMA is pleased to sponsor The Underground Collaborative, a social enterprise that aims to create employment and housing solutions for people experiencing, or at-risk of homelessness in Perth, Western Australia.

Through their project Ground+Co – a coffee cart business, they employ people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and 100% of the profits are reinvested back into training and employment.

Employees will undergo barista training for six months and thereafter, provided with supportive pathways for transition into long-term employment and stable housing.

GMA’s support of AUD$5000 will go towards the running of a coffee cart which started in October 2019. The cart is managed by three survivors of family domestic violence and two head baristas who provide training and mentorship.
