In Australia today more than 605,000 children are living in jobless families. This means going without the very basics they need to participate in their education such as books, school shoes, excursions and a school bag. It also means lack of access to role models who are able to guide them. The Smith Family believes that every child deserves a chance, and through our Learning for Life program we work with young people in need across Australia, helping them to create better futures for themselves and break the cycle of disadvantage through education.
