"A kite without a string is meaningless. A door without a latch is useless. A lock without a key is pointless. In the same way, a child without knowledge has no substance. Giving for education is the highest donation."

Learning for a Better World
About Learning for a Better World
Learning for a Better World (The LBW Trust) believes that everyone deserves an education, and every student deserves an opportunity to realise their potential and to create their own future. Together, we can transform poverty into opportunity, allowing our students to Learn for a Better World.
We draw on the generosity of Australians to provide transformational educational opportunities for young men and women in the developing world. With your support, our hope is that, when they graduate, these young men and women will have the opportunity to play an important part in improving the future of their communities and nations.
The LBW Trust is learning for a better world. We hold cricket-related fundraising campaigns and events to support tertiary students from high-school to college and university.
Women for Change engages women in philanthropy to fundraise for the tertiary education of young women.
Learning for a Better World supports tertiary and vocational education projects in India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Indonesia and Nepal. By working with reputable NGOs in these countries we are able to support students transform their lives through education.

The LBW Trust fills this funding gap.
A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labour exploitation and disease, and give them the knowledge, skills and confidence to reach their full potential.
