Be a supporter of change

Right now, a child is waking up in poverty.

CHANGE. IT STARTS WITH YOU.

WE MUST DO MORE

With you, we can.

Many children in the poorest parts of the world don’t have easy access to water and most walk long distances to the nearest stream, and too many don’t have enough food to grow up healthy and strong. This means their education and health suffers, resulting in what we call the poverty cycle. When millions of children are living in extreme poverty, we can’t just turn our backs. But our work is impossible without you.


From just $20 a month, you can kick-start permanent change in communities that need it most.

You are the key to helping children and their families break the cycle of poverty now, and for future generations.

Ludivina just wants to go to school

“It took a long time to come back from collecting water,” nine-year-old Ludivina says from her home in Timor-Leste. Before a Supporter of Change project installed a water supply in her village, she would have to walk up to an hour every day to carry five litres of water on her tiny shoulders.

This would make her exhausted, and often miss out on school. "Now I have time to play with my friends, go to school and sing!"


“SOMETIMES I ARRIVE LATE TO SCHOOL AND I’M SAD.”

Without a water supply, the burden to collect water almost always falls on children. With 750 million people without water, that’s a huge risk to children’s health. They are at serious risk of diarrhoea, and other life-threatening illnesses.

We need to help more children like Ludivina. With you, we can.
