Beginning of Anti-Poverty Week
Anti-Poverty Week is a week where all Australians are encouraged to organise or take part in an activity aiming to highlight or overcome issues of poverty and hardship here in Australia or overseas. It was established in Australia as an expansion of the UN’s annual International Anti-Poverty Day on October 17. In 2018, Anti-Poverty Week will be held from the 14th to the 20th of October.
The success of Anti-Poverty Week depends on individual people and organisations taking action to organise an activity with friends, colleagues or other groups. Any activity, large or small, that helps people to express their interest and concern about any aspect of local, national or global poverty is very welcome.

Every dollar makes a difference.
With your help, we can help the poorest of the poor become self-sufficient so they don’t need to rely on charity. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
