2012 Projects – an Australian and International Project
In 2012 1$day is all about children’s education – we want to help kids go to school because education is essential for a bright and secure future. Your fundraising in 2012 will provide Water, Sanitation and Hygiene to schools in Ethiopia, and support an award winning and innovative Indigenous School Attendance Program here in Australia. Both projects have significant additional health benefits for the children and their communities, which ensures the impact of your donation is far reaching.
Thank you for your support.
2011 Project – Village Health Clinic in Laos
1$day fundraising from 2011 is building a village health clinic in Laos: it will be opened in late April 2012. Selected by the Provincial Health Department, Sayaboury province the new village health centre in Phieng District will serve over 11,750 people living in eleven surrounding villages, including nearly 5,000 children. The clinic will be staffed by four nurses trained by the Save the Children’s Primary Health Care Program and the district health team will monitor activities at the clinic every quarter. The clinic provides more than just basic healthcare, and includes maternal and child health services, overnight stays and dispensaries. In remote regions and developing nations such as Laos, providing these accessible health services can literally change, and save, people’s lives.
Save the Children has demonstrated that a clinic such as this means:
- a child’s likelihood of surviving their first year will increase 75% above the national average.
