During the COVID-19 outbreak, The Smith Family are working hard to ensure no child is left behind. Access to learning support is a critical issue as they face the challenge of online and home learning. Additionally, due to low educational levels themselves, and/or a lack of technical skills means student's families are less confident in helping their children with their schoolwork.
These critical supports and digital skills are paramount so the kids do not suffer a higher risk of falling behind. Your sponsorship will provide a child with financial support for school essentials, learning support to help them keep up and personal support tailored to the needs of the student and their family. Will you sponsor a disadvantaged Australian Child today? Find out more HERE and HERE to sponsor an Aussie child. You could also DONATE and help even more of the 1.1 million Australian children and young people living in poverty.
Your sponsorship can help a child from a low-income family break out of a cycle of disadvantage that spawns the challenges of outcomes from poorer education, making it more difficult to get a job and having poorer overall life outcomes as a result. For $52 a month, your sponsorship combined with that of another sponsor will provide a child with the essentials such as books, stationery, and data so they don't fall even further behind in this coronavirus crisis.
Sponsoring a child-like Amy for instance, through The Smith Family not only ensures financial assistance for school essentials, but the family is also paired with a Learning for Life Coordinator who offers students encouragement and support with their schooling. It also links the family to learning and mentoring programs in their community, thus helping them fully participate in their education.
