Inception Initiative: The Smith Family

Brodie Haupt-

MD, Inception Wealth GroupIn January, we decided as a collective team to allocate funds towards some important initiatives that are close to our heart.

One of those initiatives is The Smith Family, Sponsor a child program, in which we have decided to indefinitely sponsor 2 children.  

When you don’t have what you need to fit in, school can feel like the worst place in the world for a child.

One in six Australian children and young people are growing up in poverty, where even the bare necessities are hard to come by. In a family where there is no regular income, money goes on food, rent and bills. Finding money for school uniforms, proper shoes, textbooks or the next school excursion is often impossible.

On average, children growing up in disadvantaged homes are two to three years behind their more advantaged peers.

The impacts of poverty are severe and far reaching. When they start school, many children in disadvantaged families are behind in basic reading and math skills, lacking the essentials they need to fully participate in their education. Without the skills they need to keep up in class, these students can fall even further behind, making it more difficult for them to stay engaged and motivated at school.

Without early intervention, these children can fall so far behind it is almost impossible to catch up.
