This infograph shows that approximately 1 in 10 children live in poverty in Australia. There are a number of organisations in Australia that assist children living in poverty including The Smith Family, St Vincent De Paul and Centrelink (government support). I think school breakfast/fruit/meal programs are highly beneficial to children within Australia who are living in poverty as it ensures they are guaranteed at least one nutritious meal a day and can encourage children to attend school.
Eglantyne Jebb founded Save the Children Fund in England in 1919 to help aid children in war-ravaged Europe in the aftermath of World War I. Today, the foundation continues in more than 50 countries, including the United States, with their efforts in creating positive changes children’s lives by providing families and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty.
