This letter is from Australia and the leaders undersigned, to give universities across the world the chance to walk with us and take our proven solution to beat inequality around the world.
It’s not every day that an idea that can change the world comes across your desk. Today we wanted to share one we’ve kept secret in Australia for the last 12 years. We’ve found a solution to ending inequality for the most disadvantaged kids.
In our nation, those kids are the children of the first sunrise, our Indigenous young people. Many of us across the globe have population groups who have landed on the wrong side of history and experience dispossession and discrimination, which has manifested itself into what seems like an irreversible reality.
Twelve years ago, a small group of university students set about reversing that reality for our Indigenous kids, and created a new story - a tale of Indigenous success, and educational equality.
