PASSIONATE: Tara Culey is hosting an afternoon tea for Gilmore electorate candidates and church members to address Australia’s aid programs.
Tara Culey is combining her love of baking with her passion for addressing global poverty.
The 19-year-old from Gerringong is part of a team organising an afternoon with church leaders and Gilmore electorate candidates on Wednesday, June 8 at the Nowra Uniting Church.
“We are showing the candidates the level of support in the churches for Australia’s aid program,” Tara said.
“With the latest cuts in the budget, Australia is the stingiest it has ever been. These cuts have undermined so many wonderful programs.”
Tara said the afternoon tea is an opportunity for church leaders and the election candidates to discuss aid issues.
“It’s a chance for them to talk together about how Australia can be a good neighbour, how we can have a more generous and effective aid program that helps fight poverty in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond,” she said.
Along with a group of friends, Tara has raised thousands of dollarsto fund schools and provide clean water and sanitation in developing countries.
More recently, she has twice visitedfederal politicians in Canberra to encourage them to stop the cuts to Australia’s aid program.
An avid baker since age 10, Tara is looking forward to having her cake and sharing it too.
“Our politicians need to know there is enough to go around,” she said.
