The Smith Family are a charity with one simple purpose: to help disadvantaged Australian children achieve their potential.
With 1 in 6 Australian children growing up in poverty, this is not a minor problem and The Smith Family strives to improve their lives.
They do this through one key area: education. As explained on their website:
As Australia’s largest national education-oriented charity, we support disadvantaged Australian children to participate fully in their education, giving them the best chance at breaking the cycle of disadvantage. Our 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.
