The Smith Family
In Australia today, 1 in 10 Australian children are living in jobless families, where even life's basics are hard to come by. When families are experiencing financial disadvantage, children can fall behind with their learning leaving them more vulnerable to experiencing hardship themselves later in the life.
As Australia’s largest national education-oriented charity, The Smith Family supports disadvantaged Australian children to participate fully in their education, giving them the best chance at breaking the cycle of disadvantage. Their learning support and mentoring programs help children in need to fit in at school, keep up with their peers, and build aspirations for a better future for themselves.
