Around the world more than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal with RAWCS projects is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
Our RAWCS projects aim to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults.
Saving Mothers and Children
We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.
RAWCS projects provide education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics. Women are taught how to prevent disease transmission, how to breast-feed, how to protect themselves and their children from disease and how to provide more nutritional food for their children and families.
Growing Local Economies
Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 per day. RAWCS projects and volunteers are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty.
We provide training, access to resources and financial management assistance.
Repurposing Equipment (RARE)
is an activity that establishes an efficient and effective program for distributing obsolete medical and educational equipment to disadvantaged communities in Australia and overseas under a regulative framework.
Projects both within Australia and overseas that provide health care other than fighting disease. For example dental, eye care, ear care and mental health.
