We can create justice for generations

We’ve launched our End of Financial Year Appeal and it’s all about the lasting change we can make in our world when we work together!

Laboni’s story is a great example of how powerful that change can be.

Laboni (pictured above with her mother) grew up in a typical rural village in West Bengal, India, where education is out of reach for many because families are too poor to invest in it.

Stuck in a cycle of poverty like this, going to school never seems as vita as the tasks of daily survival. Children grow up to help in the household or in the fields as soon as they are able; girls are married off young.

Our church partner, the Church of North India – Diocese of Durgapur, saw the situation and believed that things could – and should – be different.

They supported Laboni’s education, and she became the first in her family to ever finish school. Today she’s pursuing her dreams: working on a university degree and hoping to return to her community as a teacher to
inspire other girls to follow in her footsteps.

The impacts will be felt for generations to come.

Thanks to UnitingWorld supporters and our partnership with the Australian Government, our church partners also helped transform Laboni’s whole village and beyond, providing hundreds of families with income-generation
support, training in agriculture and animal husbandry, and family health interventions.

Their community development program has now reached 25 villages and more than 2,000 children like Laboni have now accessed high-quality education support and career skills training that have set them up for a completely different future.

Can you help us create justice for generations? 

We hope to raise $500,000 before June 30 to be able to be able to fund our projects and impact more than 200,000 people in the coming year.

Your tax-deductible gift will make a real difference through the work of our church partners, giving people the tools and opportunities to lift themselves out of poverty – for generations to come.

Not only that, your tax-deductible gift will be combined with funding from the Australian Government to go up to six times further!*

Please give generously and together we can create justice for generations.
