Learn about our aid response to the Nepal Earthquake
One of our nation's greatest accomplishments
Australian Aid helps some of the world's most promising people build a better and fairer future.In the last generation, humanity has made great progress in shaping a more just and equal world:
- We've cut global poverty by 50 percent in the last ten years, and
- We've dramatically reduced the number of children dying every year.
Together, through Australian Aid, we've all played a part in this story. When we work together to break down the barriers of poverty, one classroom inspires a generation, one vaccination stops a preventable disease and one seed becomes a harvest, building a brighter future for all.That's why we're for Australian Aid.
Now is a critical time for us to stand up for the life-changing work of Australian Aid.
Australia's overseas aid budget has suffered from successive cuts, and has lost the bi-partisan support it once held. These have dramatically set back our national contribution to the crucial progress of reducing poverty.
Now, more than ever, Australia needs strong support behind the life-changing work of aid.
