Join Us! Let's End Child Poverty in Australia

June 06, 2024

Child poverty is an urgent issue affecting countless young lives across Australia. 

At the Valuing Children Initiative (VCI), we believe every child deserves the opportunity to thrive in a safe and supportive environment. That’s why we’ve launched the End Child Poverty Campaign, a concerted effort to address this crisis head-on and ensure a brighter future for all Australian children.

The Urgency of Ending Child Poverty

Poverty severely impacts children by causing hunger, limiting participation in sports and school activities, and disrupting their education and friendships due to frequent relocations. It seeps into every aspect of their lives, restricting their potential and opportunities

Our Campaign Goals

Our End Child Poverty Campaign aims to pool resources from our pledge partners, driven by our shared belief that no child should live in poverty in Australia. By collecting stories, commitments, research, and expertise, we are building a strategic action plan to address this pressing issue.

We have set an ambitious target: to gather 500 pledge partners by July 31, 2024. Spreading our message across every state and territory, we aim to build our influence and power to effect change.

How You Can Help
