CBM is an international Christian development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places on earth. Poverty and disability go hand in hand creating a cycle of inequality, isolation and exclusion that leads to the most extreme forms of poverty.
Through our 110 year history and over 30 years in Australia, we have developed proven community based programs that help millions of people benefit from real, lasting change.
We focus on:
Transforming lives of people with disability
Launceston TAS 7250
The Launceston Town Mission was established in 1854 by way of a public meeting called by a few who believed that, “a large number of inhabitants of this town are living in neglect of religious ordinances and considered that this fact was a loud call for additional exertions on the part of the Christian public; “that an attempt should therefore be made to establish an institution similar to the London City Mission”.
The Mission has gone on from that day to become a well-known and respected organisation of the city and has extended its work to include many areas where its people live out the Mission’s motto of, “caring and sharing in Jesus’ name”.
The Mission’s work now extends along the North West Coast with supported accommodation, sobering up and time out facilities along with outreach work providing food and friendship to those who need it most.
The City Mission now employs over 400 people, paid and voluntary, to assist in carrying out the Mission.
“Women Supporting Women”
ESTHERS Australia was founded by women for women – Much of what we do comes from a deep passion to see women re-connect and be the village that so many of us want and need. Stirred by empathy, many of us have had life experiences of feeling isolated, depressed and lonely at different times during our own life journeys ….
We want women to know that we are here for them and will walk this journey with them … no matter what the journey looks like.

“A TRAVEL AGENCY THAT WILL MAKE YOU GLOBALLY RESPONSIBLE”
For 12 years and counting, Travel with a Cause (TWAC) has been using the profits made from its clients bookings to send computers to schools in Zambia, saving a reef and rainforest from being demolished in Fiji, to purchasing mosquito nets and Lifestraws to send with our clients travelling to developing countries to keep them safe whilst there, and then to leave behind as a legacy with the local people to now keep them safe.
Managing Director Jane Johnston began her career in travel in 1981 with Ansett Holidays. In 1995 she decided to embark on her own agency and because of her knowledge called it “Know How Travel” with the first Australian online travel site Australian Discount Travel & Tours. It wasn’t until a trip to Matangi Island, Fiji with the Fiji Tourist board that TWAC began.
Remote Matangi Island, (a 2 hour plane ride from Nadi, half an hour 4WD to a beach launch plus another half hour by high power speed boat) struck a soft spot in Jane’s heart as she learnt the only school in the area had been decimated by a cyclone and had only been sent one bag of cement to rebuild. With a vision to help the Matangi Island community to rebuild the school, Jane set up the not for profit accredited agency Travel with a Cause.
Up to the present day TWAC continues its philanthropic policy and being a successful travel agency. Offering a range of travel products including: international and domestic packages, corporate travel, volunteer programs, Workations (get paid to travel) and group travel.
TWAC has a desire to provide exceptional travel and online travel services, no matter what the requirements, whilst also giving competitive prices. You can make a difference to their cause by booking your travel with them, or by simply giving a tax deductible donation.
