SchoolAid is a national schools-based philanthropy network empowering kids to help kids in crisis.
Our purpose is to promote a world where Australian children live the values of care and compassion and so develop a lifelong sense of moral and social responsibility.
SchoolAid enables and empowers primary school kids to make a tangible difference to the lives of other children - kids helping kids - through commitment and action. By participating in our programs kids learn a sense of personal and social responsibility towards the needs of others, and how the power of their actions does make a difference. Primary school teachers are provided with a full suite of learning and activity resources that readily promote the engagement of students in active philanthropy, as well as reinforcing the values-learning benefits associated with their students' activities.
SchoolAid launches project appeals throughout the year providing Australian kids with the opportunity to learn about other kids in need both in Australia and abroad. Our projects respond to urgent humanitarian need either in the face of natural disaster or issues affecting young Australians right here in our own backyard.
What a fantastic way for our children to learn about helping others and that they can make a difference.
