The Smith Family is the largest Australian children’s education charity helping young Australians living in disadvantage to succeed at school, so they can create better futures for themselves.
The Smith Family supports children in need through their flagship Learning for Life program. This evidence-based program helps children to more fully participate in their education through a three-step approach. Financial, practical and emotional support aids in their educational journey throughout their school years. This innovative approach is improving the attendance and outcomes for disadvantaged children at school and is enabling them to be engaged in further study or work after leaving the program.
GWA supports 57 primary student scholarships, split across schools in drought-affected communities across Australia, and three tertiary students studying environmental studies.
