Some kids have it tough

Every child needs to be supported and valued. But sometimes life doesn’t work out that way.

  • Jay-Ellen’s parents lost their jobs during Covid and food was very scarce. She now has ongoing anxiety about food.
  • Sam doesn’t speak to anyone—teachers or other kids, since his Mother died.
  • Abdul has recently moved to Australia. At home, things are tense, and when he’s at school, he feels like he doesn’t fit in.
  • Maria’s mum is often unwell, so she needs to shop, cook and keep things going at home. There’s no time to do her homework or be a kid.
You can be their champion!

Kids Hope changes lives

You can be a child’s champion. Imagine the impact when a child realises they matter to you. Through one-to-one mentoring, kids experience love and belonging and in turn find new confidence. Their learning improves, they develop positive relationships and hope for a better future is ignited.
One Mentor. One child. One hour a week. The impact… immeasurable!
