Education can end poverty

 

Bridging the gap

Access to financial support and proven learning support programs removes some of the overwhelming obstacles that disadvantaged children can face – so they can come to school feeling on equal terms with their classmates. 

Close collaboration

Once a child has been accepted onto TSF’s Learning for Life Program their coordinator will work in close collaboration with the school, the child’s family and the wider community throughout the child’s education, to provide the tailored support they need.

Long-term impact

Our ‘all community approach’ is the key to successfully supporting a child to overcome the educational barriers that poverty can create and enable them to engage fully at school and gain the skills they need to succeed in education and beyond.
