Pay It Forward Initiative

We are very excited about our initiative for TEDxSydney that offers our members a way to give back to those that are often marginalised in our broader community.

This year we have partnered with the Freedom Hub.

How does Pay It Forward initiative work?

Your contribution to the Pay It Forward program helps TEDxSydney provide registrations for Freedom Hub members to take part in TEDxSydney 2023 by attending our flagship event.

About Freedom Hub:

A registered Australian charity that exists to train, equip and empower survivors of modern slavery to rebuild their life. We do this by running a Survivor School that provides them opportunity to experience freedom of choice; have fun, learn and choose their pathway forward. We offer free practical life-skill courses, work-ready classes and safe employment opportunities; thus, empowering them to live independent successful lives. Our survivor led short courses & internships help survivors regain their sense of worth; the confidence to leave their past behind and start a new life. We are community funded and run a café, event venue, retail and ethical business consulting services to cover admin costs. We also partner with others in the fight to end this crime. Donations are tax deductible.

Our mission is to…

  1. Address Modern Slavery in Australia with the aim to end it
  2. Help victims of this crime rebuild their lives and live independently
  3. Partner in the fight to end global slavery
