Australian Multicultural Charity exists to help close the education gap caused by disadvantage. We believe all children should have access to a great education regardless of their background. As a registered charity, we work with teachers and schools in disadvantaged and remote areas of Thar Mirpurkhas to empower them with funding, coaching and resources to implement initiatives that will help their students succeed.
People with a great education have better standards of health, wealth, wellbeing, social mobility and have fewer interactions with the justice system. A well-educated workforce also fuels a nation’s economic performance. Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to start school behind, struggle to catch up, and leave school before Year 12. We fund a wide variety of projects, with the key criteria being that the project will result in significant and sustainable change that will help students succeed. The projects should align with the school’s strategic plan. We support initiatives that may already have been proven successful or new initiatives that have a sound research base.
