Our Focus - Mary MacKillop Today

Our Focus

In the spirit of Saint Mary MacKillop, Mary MacKillop Today’s focus is on building dignity through learning for life. By partnering with local communities, organisations and groups, we bring dignity to thousands of children, women and families in Australia and throughout the world.


Education is more than learning to read and write; it is one of the most vital investments a nation can make in its people and their future.


The Right to Health is one of the most basic of human rights. Without health people are not able to live fruitful and purposeful lives of dignity.

Financial Inclusion and Livelihoods

Financial inclusion and the right to work are seen as enabling rights which allow an individual to improve their own well-being and that of their family and community.
