How do you take on global inequity?

Back in 2014, AIME was a mentoring organisation that was having real success tackling one of Australia’s most intractable problems: achieving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander educational parity. Why would a growing non-profit organisation – that seemed to be going from strength to strength with a huge base of support behind them – risk everything in an attempt to take their mentoring model to kids outside the margins around the world?

7 Down tells the story of AIME, an Indigenous-led organisation, going global from the point of view of 7 people who have been an integral part of the highs, the lows, the confusion, the excitement, the failure and the learnings of a 7-year journey to try and change the world.
