On Saturday November 2nd, NRCLAC collected donations from our members, totalling $165.30. The Club has matched these donations to raise a total of $331.60 for The Smith Family...
The Smith Family is a national, independent children's charity helping disadvantaged Australians to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
One in six Australian children and young people living in poverty need our support to make the most of their education.
The Smith Family delivers Learning for Life programs across 94 Australian communities, often out of the local school.
The communities have been identified as having higher concentrations of families living in economic disadvantage and are across all Australian states and territories.
As Australia’s largest national education-oriented charity, The Smith Family support disadvantaged Australian children to participate fully in their education, giving them the best chance at breaking the cycle of disadvantage. Their learning support and mentoring programs help children in need to fit in at school, keep up with their peers, and build aspirations for a better future for themselves.
Investing in the education of a disadvantaged child delivers long-term positive benefits for them, their family and potentially generations to come.
