#schoolCOSTS

$

Our #schoolCOSTS survey 'The Stress, The Strain & The Pain' revealed how unaffordable education costs are impacting families and students. A staggering 84% of families were struggling with school costs. Our research tells us that low income families always struggle with education costs - school uniform, books, stationery and devices. 

No kids should miss out on a quality education. Your donation will help us to purchase devices, data and other necessary school-related items so disadvantaged kids don't get left behind.

The impact of Covid-19 has only exacerbated this problem. Home-schooling has put a spotlight on the digital divide. However, our report shows this was an issue long before Covid and it will continue until the Victorian Government provides adequate funding to deliver the standard curriculum - this needs to cover ALL items needed for students to participate in it, including technology and excursions.

With 1 in 5 families struggling to afford necessary educational technology, we are working to bridge the divide by fundraising to get 50 devices to students in need. We ask that if you can, please donate. We know times are tough, so if you are not able to make a donation please spread the word!
