Our Tertiary & Community Education Fund works to improve the literacy, health and economic wellbeing of children through education, vocational skills and pathways to work.
This fund targets children who are living in the community but need financial assistance to access educational opportunities. We see this as the best way to lift individuals and communities out of poverty.
