Resources for teachers and students

St Jude’s strongly believes that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. We also believe that it takes people from all over the globe to come together to achieve this common goal. Educating children about global issues is a powerful tool in supporting St Jude’s.

Some ideas to get you started

Education resource pack

We have created an educational resource for schools to explore, learn and engage. These lesson plans and teaching notes cover a range of topics for various age groups including:

  • Global Development
  • Basic Human Needs
  • Equality in Education
  • Justice and Compassion

Host a speaker at your school

Gemma Sisia (Founder of St Jude’s) along with other representatives from our St Jude’s in Tanzania travel to Australia annually. In addition, we have a group of dedicated supporters in Australia (from local celebrities to past volunteers) who would love to come and do a presentation at your school. If you would like to welcome a speaker to your school, please email us to request a date and time.
