Supporting Kids To Go To School
Starting school is exciting – but also a bit nerve wracking. Your gift can help a child from a refugee family or family seeking asylum get off to the right start at school with school uniforms, shoes, textbooks and stationery.
Where your money goes
Your tax-deductible gift supports our work with migrants experiencing vulnerability, helping them make ends meet, be safe, and stay connected to those they love.

“I feel like it's so good because you're changing people’s lives. So many teachers changed my life I feel I can also try to build up and I leave a footprint on this earth where someone would be proud of. That was my teacher and that’s why I'm here.” – Elie
Elie came to Australia as a young refugee, and was determined to make the most of the new opportunities that awaited him. Red Cross helped Elie’s brothers and sisters enrol in the local high-school, and supported Elie to get started at university, where he’s studying mathematics. He wants to be a teacher, helping others to learn.
