Poverty and Inequality Education Resources

Does poverty exist in Australia? 

The answer is yes. In these lessons, students will find out who is affected and what needs to be changed to reduce poverty. 

Students will take a look at real-life stories, as well as analyse and interpret current data to discover the realities of those experiencing poverty.

Anti-Poverty Week runs from the 15th-27th of October, 2023.
