Introducing an exciting NEW initiative at the Big Exo Day... EXO JUSTICE. We're combining forces with some of our partners to bring you an interactive and educational new zone that is centred around the idea that together, we can make a difference. We've always said that we believe that life can be excellent for every person, no matter who they are, where they live or what circumstances surround them. And this is the next step toward giving YOU, our Exo family, the opportunity to be involved directly with some of the great organisations that we work with.
Meet TEAR Australia.
Have a read below about some of the things that we need to consider when it comes to a healthy and balanced view of poverty in our world today:
Out of 2.2 billion children in the world over 1 billion live in poverty.
That’s almost every second child.
So while Sam from Sydney decides whether to watch MasterChef or the Big Bang Theory, whether to have chocolate or ice-cream for dessert, and whether to chuck a sicky from school…
… Sovann from Phnom Penh in Cambodia tries to figure out where to sleep, what to get food to eat, and whether going to school will ever be a possibility.
Can you imagine what it’s like to walk in Sovann’s shoes?
