A2B Support Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation based in Australia providing support to social projects working with children, families and communities in developing countries to break the chains of poverty and injustice and improve life opportunities.
Currently A2B sends financial aid to projects located in Brazil and Indonesia. These countries have been selected as they have large populations of people living in extreme poverty and have very limited access to good safe food, education, employment, healthcare and housing. It is estimated 9.9 Million Brazilians and 38.4 Million Indonesians are living below the international poverty line on less than US$1.90 a day.
Children living in extreme poverty are often exposed to horrible dangers due to crime, corruption and other social problems. They are often forced into labour at a very young age in order to be able to survive which exposes them to unthinkable dangers. Many children are being exposed to drug use, excessive alcoholism, begging, gun violence and are victims of underage prostitution and early school dropout.
A2B exists to raise awareness of these tragic situations and to provide a mechanism for people living in Australia to support the most vulnerable with financial donations. With continued support we can continue this invaluable work of empowering communities and providing them with resources to enable them to facilitate change and create a brighter future.
Our values are centred around social justice, and that all people, being made in the image of God, are of equal value and worth. Therefore, we are committed to working with poor people and communities, supporting them as they strive to meet their basic needs, overcome injustice and empower them to fulfil their potential.
Our faith in God is central to why we do what we do. Following Jesus example to help those most in need and show unconditional love to all people, without discrimination. We believe that justice is at the heart of God:
“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” – Isaiah 1:17
We believe that it is the responsibility of all people to help those in need. We are extremely privileged to live in one of the world’s most resourced and safe countries. Drawing on these resources, together we can make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and around the world. If each person does a little, then collectively we can do a lot.
