It all started in 1982 when...

a group of very passionate people decided to do something positive for vulnerable women, children and youth living in poverty in some of the poorest countries in the world.  They decided access to education could transform their lives.

We've gone about it quietly and with passion.  We are not the biggest, but we think we are among the best.  We work in partnership with organisations in each country. We select our partners and projects carefully.  And, because we are small we've been able to build strong relationships and monitor progress with confidence.

We are proud of our record and that we have been able to make a difference by providing a good education for thousands of children for almost 30 years.

We now look forward to providing opportunities for more children in need through our merger with ChildFund Australia.
