While organisations like CBM deliver transformative programs and powerful advocacy, we can’t do it alone.
This is why we advocate for a generous Australian Aid program.
Over the last five years, the Australian Government has cut aid to its lowest levels in history. As a country, we now give just 22 cents in every $100 to people living in poverty or humanitarian crisis – and we’re set to give even less in the years to come.
Australian Aid plays an important role in ending poverty and transforming the lives of people in the world’s poorest communities. It helps children to access education, increases access to sanitation and clean drinking water, provides critical services for women who have survived violence, and builds more inclusive communities for people with disabilities.
We believe that these issues transcend partisan politics. That’s why we work with all sides of Parliament to advocate for an aid budget that reflects the generosity of the Australian people.
We partner with others to achieve a generous aid budget for now and into the future. You can join us and our partners, Campaign for Australian Aid or Micah Australia, in advocating to the Australian Government for a generous aid program.
