22 Jun Carollo Horton commitment to supporting The Sixth Child Charity
Every day in Australia, one in every six children and young people are growing up in poverty. This disadvantage affects most, if not all, aspects of a child’s life which leads to enormous impacts on the rest of their lives including their education. Through Carollo Horton’s support of The Sixth Child charity we hope to, in some way, help to break this cycle of poverty.
Founder of The Sixth Child, Jaime Ramos, who experienced and witnessed childhood trauma and disadvantage growing up, knows first-hand the significant impact, both mentally and emotionally it can have on someone – often right through to adulthood. Jaime was fortunate to have the support to help him through but many children in Australia don’t. With his life mission to help all children in need he set out to establish previously named, SANCSS Australia in 2015, now The Sixth Child.
How we support The Sixth Child
The Sixth Child is a small grassroots charity who don’t receive any Government funding and rely on support from the business community. For The Sixth Child to be able to operate and do the important work they do, they are required to have insurance cover. By supporting them with all their insurance cover needs, they are fully covered to safeguard their operations from public liability to volunteer insurance. This support means they can direct more funds into educational supplies and other community projects than on operating expenses. Some recent changes we made to their insurance cover for their new warehouse allows them to stock even more items required which can be delivered quicker. However, we are always on the lookout for other opportunities to help them further, and through the Carollo Horton family, our Account Manager, Maja Risteski, was able source a great deal on some bicycles they needed recently.
