Today, 1 in 6 Australian children and young people are living in poverty, where even life's basics are hard to come by.
When families are struggling to pay bills, children often don't have what they need for school and can fall behind with their education. This leaves them ever more vulnerable to suffering hardship themselves later in life.
If you believe disadvantaged Australian children should have the chance to create a better future for themselves, we need your help to ensure they get the most from their education and break the cycle of poverty.
