WHO
WE ARE

OUR MISSION & HISTORY

It's Philanthropy started with a simple question in 2022 - why isn't education available to everyone?

As a child of Greek migrants and a father of three, I'm still aghast that there are children in impoverished countries that are denied access to education. Studies by UNESCO show that a lack of education has significant lifelong implications for the health and economic well-being of individuals, families and communities.

By teaching a child to read, you can give them hope for a lifetime. By feeding a child at school, they can concentrate on defining for themselves a better future.
 

We are not just about providing aid, but a strive for real self-sufficiency so that these children are empowered to thrive and not live a life dependent on charity. That's why we work with Health And Development Aid Abroad (HADA), a registered Australian charity, to ensure all gifts are tax deductible for Australian donors and will be sent to the designated projects in their entirety except for bank fees.

We know that a book is mightier than a hand-out. A school chair, a lunchtime meal, a supply teacher, or a musical instrument are agents of transformation.

For us, focus to maximise results is pivotal. That’s why we empower disadvantaged communities, in the poorest countries, through child education, one village at a time. Planting seeds of change everywhere we go.
 

Help us today to create education for change and give some of the world’s poorest kids a brighter future.

Thank you,

Dimitri
