Small savings for a bright future 

Seeing your child make the best of their opportunities and shine is an amazing feeling for most parents. 

This is exactly how Eva feels about her daughter Emily, after investing small amounts each week in an education fund for more than 12 years.

Was it difficult to put money aside? “Initially,” said Eva. “But I only put aside $20 a week, which I found quite manageable—later even as a sole parent. The amount rose slightly over the years, but over 12 years, it is a small amount for your child’s education.” 

As a teacher Eva recognises the importance and value of education.  When she received the ASG brochure she said she knew it would be a sound investment. 

“Putting aside small amounts of money every week became a normal part of how to budget—a skill I’m passing on to Emily,” Eva said. “The money I’ve received back from ASG has helped pay Emily’s school fees, and textbooks, school uniforms and shoes for my other children too.
“I’m really proud that I did this 17 years ago because it gave me a head-start in ensuring that my children were well prepared for the new school year every time.” 

Now in Year 12, Emily is a kind, well-rounded young woman with well-developed social skills. Since Year 7 she has continuously received the Principal’s Academic Achievement award; is the vice-captain of her school; is involved in sporting activities and pastoral issues; and is an amazing dancer.  

Like all parents Eva hopes that Emily can cash in on her good education. “There are many more opportunities for young people now. I hope Emily will explore these opportunities and continue to be a happy, positive and a successful individual.”

Emily’s interest lies in humanitarian law. After completing Year 12, she may take a gap year to work and travel. Being a wonderful dancer, she may also get opportunities with her dance school.
A decision made 17 years ago is reaping rewards for the whole family. 

Emily was enrolled in The Education Fund.

When we enrolled our children in ASG, it was to fund their future education. The money that we contributed every month was specifically for their university studies. We thought this would motivate our children to work hard, and getting the scholarship benefit would also help them during their uni days. It would be a good start to their lives – in their late teens and early twenties.

Sunil from NSW on why ASG has been important to them

As parents and grandparents we believe that our children and grandchildren need our support so that they can have a secure future. We are very proud of what Edward has achieved; now we will focus on Lucy and provide her with the financial support and encouragement she needs for a good education. As a grandmother I feel this is very important.

Grandmother and grandson
We were touched when the Y Service Club offered (our son) Jake the gift of education. Education is very important to us. It will give him an opportunity to chase his dreams and choose a career that he enjoys.
