5 million girls in South Asia
aren't in school.

It's not by choice. Parents value education and know the difference it will make in their children’s lives, and children want to go to school. But sadly, the sheer costs of school fees, textbooks and uniforms are too often out of reach for families living on less than $2 per day. For those who manage to scrape together the funds needed, the education they can afford is often poor quality—sometimes the teacher doesn’t even show up to class.

But you can help.

Your donation will help Opportunity International Australia give a hand up to families in South Asia so that more children can reach their potential and live empowered lives free from poverty.
