- Charity & Non for Profit
iCARE Australia is a non-governmental organisation working to support education in developing countries.
Established in 1982, we have a long history of helping to improve the lives of people and communities. Our vision is for women, children and youth in poor communities to become empowered through education to break the cycle of poverty.
We started out as a child sponsorship organisation, and some of our long-term supporters have helped children all the way through to young adulthood.
Today, we are well advanced in making the transition to supporting education programs which are the most effective way of achieving positive and lasting change for the women, children and youth we work with, as well as for their schools and communities.
Our programs aim to transform lives by: increasing access to education for women, children and youth from disadvantaged communities; helping students to achieve their full potential at school; strengthening schools as learning environments; and improving livelihoods.
