Will you give a life-changing gift to Vinnies, so kids like Jamal* get the chance they deserve to thrive at school?

Eleven-year-old boy Jamal* who once struggled to speak up in class, attributes his growing resilience to taking part in one of the education programs run by St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria (Vinnies Victoria).

The answer to what does success and confidence feel like for him is performing a solo music performance on stage to rapturous applause at his class concert last year.

“It made me feel so happy,” says Jamal. “There was a lot of clapping. I felt amazing. It made me want to do more”.

Across the state, Vinnies Victoria has eight dedicated free programs that help students really shine. The Dandenong Education Program, which Jamal attends in outer Melbourne, focuses on tutoring students from grade 2-12.

“Without the confidence I got from the program, I don’t think I would have been able to perform by myself. I was shy before.”

Your donation will help ensure that struggling students are allowed to fully participate in their education and realise their full potential.
