Horizon Power has supported Fair Game since the beginning

Their sustained commitment has allowed Fair Game to grow, enabling our volunteers to deliver health education and fitness programs along with recycled sports equipment to tens of thousands of children in remote, regional and underserviced communities right across Western Australia over the last 10 years.

Horizon Power was vital to planning for sustainable growth in the program

We now operate in eight regional towns supporting 400 girls in achieving a better education. This wouldn’t have been possible on this scale without Horizon Power leading the way and inspiring other corporate partners to join us.

Horizon Power has been a long-time supporter of our vision and mission

Our partnership allows TLG to provide hundreds of hours of free tutoring and mentoring to students experiencing disadvantage across Western Australia. The team at Horizon is so enthusiastic about the work we do and it’s clear to see the team has a genuine passion for strengthening rural communities. Teach Learn Grow would not be where it is today without their ongoing support.

With Horizon Power’s support we are able to enhance the children’s experience

We know that attending a show at a child’s school is often their first experience with live performance when you live outside of a major city, and we strive to make this a meaningful experience for all children. Puppetry is a particularly powerful art form as children can access it in many ways during our tours.
