As part of the John Curtin Leadership Academy program, the students were linked with Opportunity International Australia to help raise funds to train a health leader in India.

Student Kirsty Kennedy said music played a role in everyone’s life; it was universal so there was no better way to connect the people of Perth with women in India than a music event.

‘Once trained, these women educate their communities, passing on their knowledge and this creates a ripple effect, saving countless lives through the practice of basic health and hygiene we take for granted here in Australia,’ she said.

‘Every dollar we raise allows Opportunity to broaden the exposure of this program, training more health leaders who go on to help save more lives.’

Artists include Braves, The Morning Night, Kings Justice, Museum Wednesdays and Reilly Craig.

A Night of Opportunity is at Mojos Bar on May 8 from 8pm.

Tickets are $15 and can be bought through www.eventbrite.com.au.
