Rotary SAFE Families and Changepreneurs are working together to address the priority for young women to enjoy respectful relationships whilst understanding the need for prevention of abuse in any form to women in our CALD communities in Australia.


The Changepreneurs group was established by Abiola Akinbiyi in 2020. The group consists of dynamic young women from migrant backgrounds looking to make impact within the Australian community. 

In 2020  the Changepreneurs was created, aiming to empower youth and CALD women through mentorship, outreach, and education, with proven success stories from all mentees, from excellent ATAR to successful professional careers in health, finance, entrepreneurship, leadership, and community service.

These wonderful women positively impact the communities through their passion, skills, knowledge, and experience. Changepreneurs are in the business of making change. Less talk, more doing, positive impact, and giving back to community.
