Hope Through Literacy & Numeracy

HoTLaNe Academy

We are addressing the serious issue that a significant number of Australian children and youth can’t read and write.

Tikvah Education Australia works collaboratively with schools across every state of
Australia to identify and support students who are at significant risk of not achieving
their educational targets in literacy and numeracy before the conclusion of their primary,
or high school, education.

Free, one-on-one, personalized instruction is provided by accredited teachers to equip
students, who are significantly behind national standards, so they can experience greater
confidence and success in school.

Become a Sponsor

The HoTLaNe Academy provides services that are free to students who are enrolled in Australian public schools.

How you can become a sponsor:

  • Sponsor an Interstate or International Excursion – The School of Wanderers provides the opportunity for students to travel across Australia and overseas. This includes HoTLaNe Academy students, as well as other eligible students. On our first international excursion, where we will walk the Kokoda Trail with 7 students in November 2023, we will be creating an educational program about Kokoda and the ANZAC’s at the same time. Your sponsorship not only makes the excursion possible for students, but also contributes to the development of the educational program that will be sold to schools, teachers, and individuals that will generate long-term income for the HoTLaNe Academy and the School of Wanderers.
  • Sponsor a Project – The Tikvah team travels across Australia and internationally to design authentic learning opportunities that will inspire young people to explore the world themselves. The educational programs we create will be sold to schools, teachers and individuals that will generate long-term income for the HoTLaNe Academy and School of Wanderers. Your sponsorship will help us fund the development of these projects.
