Helping all Australians get the education they deserve
So many Australians can't fulfill their education goals due to social and economic inequalities.
Children without access to digital devices fall behind at school. Families recovering after a natural disaster often have limited funds for uniforms and school books. Women starting a new life after escaping domestic violence are unable to enrol in further education without a laptop. Newly immigrated Australians often need assistance accessing learning tools.
GIVIT is committed to ensuring everyone has what they need to get the education they deserve, and you can help.

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the economic and social inequalities faced by many Australians, and this extends to people trying to better themselves through education.
1 in 6 Australian young people regularly go without life's basics, and this often means they don't have what they need to learn. Poor educational outcomes can lead to reduced employment opportunities, lower income levels and eventually result in lesser opportunities for the next generation. This is the heartbreaking cycle of disadvantage.
This is more than just a back to school appeal. Year-round, we need donations of items like school shoes, books, stationery, laptops, tablets and other digital devices, for people of all ages, to ensure they get the education they deserve.
