Women's Health In the North (WHIN)

WHIN works to eliminate gender inequities and improve outcomes in women’s health, safety and wellbeing. Boojum worked with WHIN to design and deliver the website. The visual design was realised by Gemma Morley.

University of Melbourne - Driving to Health

We are proud to work as software developer for the University's health research projects. Driving to Health is a mobile web application that supports taxi drivers in achieving better mental and physical health.

No To Violence (NTV)

NTV is the peak body for organisations and individuals working with men to end family violence in Victoria and New South Wales.

As well as the NTV website, we developed the call centre software that enables NTV to counsel thousands of men each year.

Why it's important

Our work in the Community is based on the belief that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. And yes, we are quoting Martin Luther King Jr.

Australian society seems to be at a crossroads of fear. People of many different political persuasions are concerned, but seem hesitant to act:

  • the failure to deliver justice for Australia's indigenous citizens
  • gender equity
  • how we treat refugees
  • whether we can act decisively to curtail dangerous climate change.

Every time you compromise your values out of fear, you diminish your self-respect and dilute your ability to make good judgements.

We started Boojum in order to have done with fear, and to find firm ground once again beneath our feet.

Let's change the world.
