Campaign for Australian Aid

Australian Aid helps the world’s most promising people.

It helps people break down the barriers of poverty that prevent them from realising their potential and shape a better and fairer future for themselves, their communities and the world.

We’re encouraging Australians to celebrate our important contributions, and ensure that as a nation we are for Australian Aid. Because it makes a world of difference.

Together, through Australian Aid, we have helped children claim their rights.

Why now?
Australia’s foreign aid budget has suffered from successive cuts. These have dramatically set back our national contribution to the crucial progress of international development. Now is a critical time for us to stand up for this life-changing work.

For any teenage girl, getting your period for the first time can be overwhelming. But in many parts of the world, it can stop girls from going to school. In Uganda, where talking about periods is taboo, girls risk infection due to poor management of their menstrual cycle, and don’t understand what is happening to their bodies. 

"I can concentrate in class, I can play netball. I am free.”

This leads to high school drop-out rates. But a Plan International Australia program, funded by both the Australian Aid budget and supporters. is helping Ugandan girls understand and manage their menstrual cycles.
