History

The Opening the Doors Foundation was launched on 4 August 2001 – National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day by Archbishop Denis Hart at the Australian Catholic University, Melbourne.

The 2001 theme if National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day was: ‘We are watching and learning from you – make us proud of what you do’.

It is the intention of the Opening the Doors Foundation that the Indigenous youth of Victoria will be proud of what it does in offering them an educational opportunity that will make a real and tangible diffierence in their lives.
