You can decide how much you would like to donate each month, using either your credit or debit card. At the end of each financial year, we will send you a receipt to claim your donations on your tax.

Here's the difference you make:

I understand that every child is individual with different strengths and different ways of learning, By recognising and understanding each child and what it is that they love and how best they learn, I can provide them with the best experiences that help them to reach their full potential in all developmental areas. I love doing it.

(Through Kids on Track) I learnt more about how drugs and alcohol affect our bodies. I don't want to end up the same way as Dad so I can now care for my body and make better decisions than what he did.
