Corporate teams across the country are taking up the challenge…
What can be done to assist our farmers who would not normally reach out and would prefer to battle it alone than ask for charity?
Hosted by professional facilitators, the Drought Angels Rainmakers Challenge includes interactive fast-paced simulation exercises and thought-provoking discussions that promote teamwork, increased empathy and more open minds. The results?
Our Australian farming families endure so much hardship for the rest of the country to put food on our tables. Their farms are at the mercy of a multitude of natural disasters such as droughts, floods, bush fires, crop and herd diseases, unpredictable market demand, pricing fluctuations and labour shortages. All of these cause financial hardship and have a huge impact on their mental health and well being, which is compounded when the rains don’t come, year after year, or when they do, they come all at once. This is why people in rural populations are 2 times more likely to die by suicide.
Drought Angels has been working so hard since 2014 to provide personalised support to thousands of farming families across Australia:
Drought Angels believes that the people who put the food on our tables should not be going without food on their’s.
“We don’t give charity, we give thank you’s to those who put food on our tables and clothes on our backs. Our goal is to protect and preserve this land for the benefit of everyone, but to do this we need to stand beside our farming families and their communities who show such resilience and true Aussie grit.”

“Drought Angels are truly amazing people. I have seen firsthand the importance of their work in our rural communities especially in tough times. From practical assistance such as food for the family and feed for the animals, to emotional support and more, I am so very thankful that our farmers have Drought Angels in their corner. They are literally life savers and might well be real Angels in disguise.”
Lynne McGranger, much loved Australian Actress (aka Irene Roberts in soap opera ‘Home and Away’)
“Everyone puts their pants on one leg at a time. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect. This is a great opportunity for corporates to come together and work side by side with us to show their support for our Aussie farmers and help make a meaningful difference.”
Jenny Gailey, Director, Drought Angels
10-30 people online
10-100 people face-to-face
2 hours online or 3 hours face-to-face group sessions with interactive activities and team challenges.
Participants will have the opportunity to self-reflect, draw parallels to their team and work environments and consider how their own actions impact others. They will explore the different roles within a team and the importance that each team member has in reaching the end goal. They will be challenged to look at new ideas and how they can use those to improve the world around them.
You'll discover ways the charity serves farming communities throughout Australia by providing practical, financial and moral support and help by assembling desperately needed hampers and care packs of basic necessities and treats that will be distributed by the charity to Aussie farming families doing it tough.
You'll also get to know your colleagues and have fun whilst increasing your social impact!
In addition to the education and contribution to the charity via the team building exercises, we are proud to make a financial contribution too. The charity will receive 50% of the net profits from each session (a minimum of $500 plus GST).
If you're looking to expand your team’s perspective, challenge your own world view and learn more about this incredible home-grown true Aussie charity, this is the team challenge for you. Your team will participate in an engaging session filled with fun activities and will leave with a fresh outlook on the issues our world faces.
