Assist A Student Program

 

In many Asia Pacific countries, poverty excludes individuals from reaching their full potential by being a barrier to opportunities, including accessing education.  Donors provide $100 per student that assists a primary, secondary or tertiary student in one of our partner countries to access education.   In our partner countries, local St Vincent de Paul Society members select students from families in need to be assisted by the program.  
The Program commenced in 1986 as the Adopt A Student Program, as a pilot program in Victoria, providing $70 per student sponsored in Australia’s Twinned countries.  The program became national in 1995.

In 2020, the program is supporting 2,400 students in Cambodia, Indonesia, Kiribati, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
