One of these inspirational students, Lily, graduated high school last year and told us how she felt about the support she has received as a recipient of our Learning for Life sponsorship.
“I'm super excited about graduating. Year 12 was a massive year and my mum is proud of me, so it's pretty exciting,” says Lily.
Before becoming involved with The Smith Family, Lily’s family struggled to provide the essentials required for school. Lily and her sisters would often miss out on school excursions and would receive second-hand uniforms from their friends.
“The Smith Family sponsors helped us to be able to afford excursions and text books and other stuff that most other kids get normally,” says Lily.
“I'm so grateful for what [our sponsors] have done, it's really helped us. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity and doing what you've done.”
