The Friends of the Children Foundation is a ‘not-for-profit’ Australian organisation focused on creating a better future for our children. Launched in 1998, the founder of this organisation, Mr Shashi Kochhar realised that a better future could only be achieved through striving for improved health and by creating more awareness towards our environment. He subsequently formed this foundation and has dedicated all his resources towards raising much needed funds to provide better health through the world famous ‘Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal’. He also tackled environmental education issues by joining and working with the ‘Clean up the World’ and ‘Clean Up Australia Day’ foundations. 15 years on, the foundation’s primary focus remains on raising funds and working with organisations that are involved in providing better health and education for our citizens of tomorrow.
