Charities that help child poverty
Because of our relatively high standard of living, many Australians consider child poverty to be an overseas problem. In fact, more than 17 percent of Australian children fall below the poverty line.
Because these children don't have access to basic education, healthcare and protection services they struggle to reach their potential. Charities that help child poverty, like Save the Children, implement programs to make change both in Australia and overseas.
We believe the path out of child poverty is education. Save the Children helps millions of children around the world to both prepare for school (through early childhood education) and go to school. Education can help a child gain valuable knowledge and skills, and improve their lives.
Here in Australia we offer programs that improve access and school attendance for disadvantaged children. We also work overseas on programs aimed at helping children to access education.
