About us


The Lasallian Foundation was established in 2004 by the De La Salle Brothers of Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. The Foundation is a small, non denominational organisation supporting development projects in the Asia Pacific region and more recently in South Sudan.

Over many years, the De La Salle Brothers and committed lay partners have funded and established innovative projects across Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and South Sudan.

The Lasallian Foundation is an approved overseas aid foundation in Australia and has Deductible Gift Recipient status, meaning all donations over $2 are tax deductible.   

our vision 

We live in an age of tremendous wealth and progress. Notwithstanding, there are children who have little hope for the future due to poverty and ignorance.

For more than 330 years the De La Salle Brothers have been committed to reaching out to the last, the lost and the least through education in the Lasallian tradition. It is this tradition that sees our ongoing commitment to support young people and their communities in effecting positive change for those who have little hope for the future due to poverty and ignorance.

Working together, we will create hope for the future for all children and young people regardless of gender, race, faith, nationality, ethnicity, class/caste, language, physical ability, opinion, political alliance or sexual orientation.
