CANBERRA — In December, Save the Children Australia announced their third merger within a period of less than three years.

For Save the Children, the December merger with Child Wise allowed them to gain 25 years of experience, training, and research to assist Australian organizations in protecting children from harm. Their merger with Hands on Learning, or HoL, in February last year enhanced and strengthened their work to support access to education for children at risk. And the 2015 merger with Good Beginnings Australia provided the ability to support vulnerable Australian children through early childhood development programs.
