Make a connection that gives back

Education is essential to empowering the world’s most vulnerable children and helping to break the cycle of poverty for millions of families across the globe. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, education can be found everywhere in a sponsored child’s community.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that more than 3.8 million young Australians are enrolled in school, while UNESCO statistics show more than 265 million children mostly in developing countries do not have access to education. There is much work to do.
