Disadvantaged Communities Program
Support couples in disadvantaged communities with your donation dollar, your networks and your prayers!
Support Disadvantaged Communities
We know that Australia, USA, UK and NZ are lucky countries and for most couples our course fees are a fraction of their budget. We also know that there are exceptions to this at home and that our exchange rate can make fees prohibitive to couples in disadvantaged communities abroad.
Our mission is to make the liberating insights and practical tools of SmartLoving available to all Catholic couples and we are proud to partner with donors across the globe in making this a reality through deep discounts and special offerings.
For example, we offer the Engaged course for just $5 AUD to couples in Africa, and $10 AUD in Malaysia. In addition, any couple in any country in financial hardship can apply for an individual discount.

Do you know a priest, religious or other leader in a mission diocese or disadvantaged community who would benefit from our support? Here's how you can help:
- Email us ([email protected]) with a brief explanation of the situation.
- Reach out to your contact to share your enthusiasm for SmartLoving.
- Do an email introduction so we can follow up with an info pack and video consultation.
We can never have enough prayer! The work we do in promoting God’s vision for marriage can attract opposition –
please pray for us and our volunteers that we will be courageous and sensitive in all that we do.
