Imagine being 9 years old and being the only kid in your class who can’t go on the school trip because your parents can’t afford it. Imagine being kicked out of your house at 16 and trying to finish school while struggling to live on your own.
About 1 in 10 students of the Halton District School Board (HDSB) live at or below the poverty line and encounter financial barriers like these that make it difficult for them to regularly attend or fully engage in school. The Halton Learning Foundation (HLF) helps to eliminate these barriers through emergency funds, student subsidies, scholarships and school grants.
With your support, every student in our community can have the chance to fit in at school, to have the same experiences as their peers, to be engaged in learning, and to explore possibilities for the future.
