We believe the purpose of life is to learn about the world and share that knowledge to reduce suffering and that social isolation amongst the worst forms of suffering. We believe we can help reduce isolation by finding ways for people to connect and belong (We think that the mainstream is overly focused on connecting people via “alpha” activities such as competitive sports). We believe that social connection for children at risk is the priority for a systematic change.
We are striving to have over 90+ social clubs that cater to our beneficiaries across Australia by 2027.
Grow and sustain a national network of Integrated Interest Groups based on Construction Play (aka Brick Club).
We will have achieved our mission when construction play is embedded in the Australian psyche alongside Cricket, Football, and Surf Lifesaving.
The Humble Enterprise Foundation was created to help Australian’sÂ at risk of social isolation particularly those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, to participate in clubs and groups which aid with the development of social skills and reduce suffering. At this time in our history, abundant evidence concludes that children with disabilities face a future of limited opportunities and extreme difficulty finding sustainable employment. We look to maximise social integration and identification of skills at an early age. We have a particular focus on a) harnessing the special skills available to children with high functioning autism, b) reduction in bullying in children who are “different” and c) ultimately ensuring every Aussie kid has a mate. All of our action is focused on finding a place in Australian culture, reducing stigma and avoiding decades of misdirected effort. Â Within the context of the Commonwealth priorities, we focus on INCLUSION issues ie reducing cultural, systemic and environmental obstacles to access and participation for people with a disability.
