The Government is on the brink of announcing a third cut to Australian aid in its first term.
We’re concernedÂ the GovernmentÂ hasn’t yet got the message so we’re going to take the message direct to the Treasurer. Australians don’t want aid cut.
If we can raise $3500 together,Â we can park a mobile billboard right outside the Treasurerâ€™s office with a clear message: Enough is Enough – Don’t Cut Aid.
More than 20% of budget savings have already come from the aid program, which is only 1.3% of the federal budget. Further cuts to aid will hurt the worldâ€™s most promising people.
Last year the Australian aid program enabled over 1.3 million more children to enrol in school, built more than 9,000 new classrooms, and trained over 100,000 teachers.
Cuts to Australian aid mean these kinds of programmes will be downsized or cut.
Support usÂ right now to ensure the Treasurer gets the message.
Thank you for taking action today.
