Childhood life in the village of “Da La Bann” could be hard with a lack of basic infrastructure but also fun. “I love going to school walking together with my friends every day. It is fun. I love riding the boat as well as riding the small truck,” said Aye Aye referring to using different kinds of transport ways to go to school depending on the season. Aye Aye’s dad is the one who used to handle the boat with motor for the children to go to school. “After we walk to the river bank, we all clean our feet to go on the boat. Sometimes when we reach school, our clothes are a little bit splashed with mud,” said Aye Aye with a big smile.

Help Ged keep her promise on Aid

Ged Kearney, newly elected member for Batman, asked her electorate to remind her to use her maiden speech to call for Australian Aid to be increased. Let's make sure she doesn't forget!

Reports have revealed the Turnbull Government is considering a $400 million a year cut to Australian aid in the Budget.

These reports come as the Government is looking to fund a $65 billion dollar corporate tax cut, but taking from the world’s poorest to give to Australia’s richest would be unconscionable. It would be like Robin Hood in reverse.

Your new Member of Parliament, Ged Kearney, committed to her electorate to fight these cuts by calling for an increase to Australian Aid during her maiden speech. We’re sure it’s a busy time for Ged, so let’s send her a friendly reminder to make sure she doesn’t forget.

 

 

Send Ged a reminder!
