Child at school

Ten reasons why we’re for Australian Aid

You’ve sent kids to school in rural Vietnam, built bridges that grow businesses in the Mekong, pumped water to villages in Flores, and loaned funds to budding agricultural entrepreneurs. Here are 10 reasons why all Australians should be for Australian aid.

In 2014 alone, Australian aid:

  1. Helped get 1.3 million more children into school
  2. Built more than 9,000 new classrooms
  3. Trained over 100,000 teachers
  4.  Equipped more than 400,000 farmers with better technology
  5. Vaccinated more than 2.3 million children
  6. Supplied 2.9 million people with access to safe drinking water
  7. Ensured nearly 1 million more mothers had access to a skilled birth attendant
  8. Increased access to basic sanitation for over 1 million people
  9. Provided critical services for more than 66,000 women who have survived violence
  10. Responded to emergencies in 24 countries including Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and flooding in Solomon Islands

Incredibly, these life-saving investments were achieved by a program on which we invest

less than one per cent of the Federal Budget.
