Help us to ensure every child can thrive.

Since 1979, Life Ed has proudly reached millions of Australian kids, empowering them to make safer and healthier choices through education. Life Ed’s vision is that all Australians live to their full potential. However, as a not-for profit organisation; our impact is limited by funding.

Almost all of our delivery into the thousands of schools throughout the country is unfunded. This means schools in most cases rely on parents to pay for a visit from Life Ed. This means Life Ed doesn’t reach many remote and vulnerable communities. These are often the communities that need us most. These are often the communities in Australia where teaching children life-skills can help break the cycle when it comes to chronic disease; mental illness and substance abuse.

 

Your generous donation directly funds our ability to help young Australians live to their full potential.

Like you, Life Ed believes that every child deserves to thrive. The Thrive Children’s Fund has been created to exclusively fund children and schools in remote rural and low socio-economic areas.

 

 

 

“I believe that every child deserves a chance to thrive, and so the work we do helps lift all children from all walks of life. It doesn’t matter if they are in the city, the country or in remote areas, if they come from a traditional family or a single family, or if they have other challenges like developmental or learning challenges – we are there for every child, and that’s what gets me up in the morning.”

— Kellie Sloane; CEO Life Education Australia
