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 participate in their education more fully 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 at school for children in need, and is enabling them to be engaged in further study or work after leaving the program.
For the past 2 years GWA has supported 60 children in drought affected areas in Australia.
