Create a better future!

There are over 4 million people living in poverty in Australia and over 2,000,000 of this number are women. That is 52% of all people living in poverty are women.  The poverty levels have fluctuated between 11.5% and 14.4% during the 1999/00 through to 2015/16 years. (Ref: ACOSS AND UNSW Sydney “POVERTY IN AUSTRALIA 2018” )

A study conducted by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation), showed a strong link between education and poverty and found that if all adults received just two years more of education they could be lifted out of the poverty cycle.

Education transforms lives!

Education provides individuals with the skills necessary to find work, secure a fair wage and lift themselves out of poverty. UNESCO found education helps promote inclusion and prevents marginalization of the individual. (Ref: UNESCO) 2019 “Right to Education”)
