Over 160 million tons of plastic is produced each year to create single-use disposable items and packaging.
With no established system to close the loop, this has led to over 70 years of accumulation of plastics in landfill (40%) and the environment (32%), with only 10% being recycled.
Plastics end up in waterways and oceans, breaking down into ever smaller pieces called micro-plastics, well known for entering the food chain through the water, air and food that we consume.
Seabin Smart Tech, similar to a rubbish bin X pool skimmer, removes floating plastics as small as 2mm, filtering 600,000L of water per day from oil and surface pollutants.
$ 1 = removes 1.2kg of plastic and debris from the sea
The war in Syria continues to have a devastating impact on the lives of women and children. An estimated 6.6 million people have fled Syria, mostly to Jordan. 80% are women and children who, without the protection of shelter, family or country, are vulnerable to poverty, early marriage, sexual exploitation and domestic violence.
By providing cash assistance, UNHCR gives them a shield. Each month, women can withdraw cash to support their families, pay rent, buy food or schoolbooks for their children. Cash assistance returns to women the dignity of choice.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, works to protect and assist refugees everywhere.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to fall through the cracks of our education system, trapping them in a cycle of vulnerability and illiteracy. This devastating gap is particularly evident in remote Indigenous communities, where the writing abilities of year 9 students are at year 1 level. If not addressed in the early years, this issue continues into adulthood. In remote areas, up to 70% of Aboriginal adults are ‘functionally illiterate’. This is a national tragedy.
We believe literacy is freedom; to take control of your life, be informed, have a voice, stand up for your rights, resist exploitation, be self-confident and self-reliant. Literacy unlocks the door to learning and a world of endless possibilities.
