Here at Interflow, we are proud to have a partnership with The Smith Family. Today, through their ‘Learning for Life’ program, we are proud to sponsor 36 students across Australia, enabling them to obtain better access to educational resources to support their career aspirations.
This year, The Smith Family is celebrating its 100th year. Way back on Christmas Eve in 1922, five businessmen walked into a Sydney orphanage carrying armfuls of toys and sweets. They walked out inspired by a single goal: to improve the lives of children experiencing disadvantage in Australia.
Over many decades, The Smith Family has evolved from providing emergency relief to families through historic events such as the Great Depression and Cyclone Tracy, to their modern-day focus on transforming children’s lives through education.
Through our shared vision of improving the lives of the communities we serve, we’re glad to have a special partnership with The Smith Family.
Congratulations on 100 years!
