Thanks to the support of many thousands of caring Australians like yourself, in the last year1, we reached more than 174,823 disadvantaged children and their families in 94 communities across Australia.

Sadly, there are many more Australian children in need.

By sharing why you sponsor a child, support our work with a monthly donation or volunteer in one of the Learning for Life communities, you’ll encourage others to also give generously.

The more you share, the more people we can reach to spread the word about the need to support the more than 1.1 million Australian children and young people living in poverty2.

You’ll also help us to raise awareness about the importance of giving every Australian child the chance to fully participate in their education so they can learn, for life.

Our website and social networks are great for learning more about the important issue of disadvantage in Australia. Share our web pages, Facebook posts, Tweets with your family and friends, to help spread our message.
