The Difference You Can Make

So what does a home internet connection actually mean...?

Meet Kathy, one of our Life-Changing Connections beneficiaries and overall superwoman!

Despite raising five wonderful children, using her spare time to volunteer in an aged care home and being fluent in four languages, securing paid work has been a challenge, and as a result, so has providing internet at home to help her children study.

Thanks to Start customers, we have been able to provide her home internet connection!

Her children can now complete online study and research at home, while Kathy no longer has to spend two hours a day with them at the local library to help them keep pace with their peers.
