Together we can break the cycle of inequity for Australia’s country communities

Sam needed regular therapy sessions, but the nearest speech pathologist was too far away.


When Sam began school, she was unable to speak in sentences. She quickly became withdrawn, didn’t want to go to school and struggled to communicate with her teacher or classmates. The closest help was over 150km away.

Three ways you can help


Every dollar goes to to support country children. We’re funded by a combination of your donations, investments, government grants and corporate partnerships. Anything you give is enormously appreciated. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.  

Get involved


Sausage sizzles, fun runs, marathon bike rides – anyone can help out with a little imagination and inspiration. Find out how you can get involved.

Get involved


Without volunteers, we couldn’t function. Many volunteers are long-term regulars, others offer their skills for a specific event. Even if you only have a few hours to spare, we’d love to have you!
