What is Lowana?

Lowana is a non-profit, volunteer based study centre committed to form girls and women of character, service and friendship.

The Study Centre provides programs and activities designed to foster the holistic development of the person, to help them reach their full potential in order to serve society. Activities are run by volunteers and include study programs, private tuition, leadership camps and workshops, holiday and social activities, and opportunities for local and international volunteer community service projects. At Lowana, everyone is given a mentor who helps her set and reach her personal goals.

Lowana is an Aboriginal word for ‘girl’. We recognise the important role of women to make a positive impact amongst their family, friends, local community and society as a whole. By encouraging women to seek personal and professional excellence in their studies and work, they can become agents of change.

Lowana is a project of Association for Educational Projects (AEPL), a non-profit company focused on promoting educational activities, character development and Christian ideals.

Lowana welcomes women of all ages, creeds, socio-economic and cultural backgrounds and takes an authentic interest in helping them reach their full potential.

Lowana Mission, Vision, and Values

Mission

Lowana exists to build character and foster professional excellence in women of all ages so they can be positive agents of change in society. 

At Lowana, we are a group of volunteers who strive to achieve this mission by creating opportunities for personal growth through study programs, professional workshops, community service, spiritual formation, leadership camps, personalised mentoring and more. 

Vision

Better women, daughters, sisters, mums and friends, in the families of Western Sydney to the wider community.

At Lowana, we believe that every woman is unique. Lowana helps each person achieve their full potential to serve society, inspiring them to live generously and with deeper meaning. Our focus is providing an environment where social awareness and personal character development can flourish. We work in partnership with families and other professionals who share this vision. 

Values

We lead
At Lowana, we build leaders through developing strong individual character development and professional excellence. Inspirational volunteers (teachers, university students, young professionals and parents) equip girls and women of all ages to navigate a world saturated with opportunities, information and varied pressures. Our initiatives enable them to reach their goals, building virtue and interior life. 

We inspire

At Lowana, we support women of all ages to be a force for positive change, as leaders in their own right regardless of their age, personality or occupation. We see the unique “genius” of women that empowers them to have a long term impact in their workplace, among family, friends and the broader community.

We serve
At Lowana, we have a strong focus on community service and selfless giving. We provide numerous community service opportunities throughout the year to help girls and women discover leadership at the service of others. These opportunities also forge authentic and lifelong friendships amongst the women who participate, further building a community of meaningful connection.
