Two Wodonga students are getting the education they deserve thanks to a group of 37 passionate women.
The VIEW (voice, interests and education of women) group sponsor the students as part of The Smith Family's Learning for Life program.
The volunteer organisation's national president and vice president were in town on Wednesday to speak to the women and "check in on the work they are doing".
"All our clubs are important whether they sponsor two or 10 students," national president Jan Roberts said.
"We like to come and see what each club needs and requires and also thank everyone for their hard work.

"We have 1500 members and more than 300 clubs across the country and currently have 1370 Learning for Life students.
"These women are an important part of every community."
And Wodonga president Lyn Finch said the visit was "validation" for the club's work in the community.
"We are passionate about giving every child the chance to access education and possibly go to university," she said.
"It is a very rewarding club to be a part of - when you see the student's report cards and they have improved, that is what it is all about."
But for the women, the club is much more than just giving back - it is about the "three f's".
"Fun, fundraising and friendship," Ms Finch said.
"We have a lot of fun and the friendships we have are very important."
Wodonga VIEW meet the third Wednesday of each month at Edward's Tavern Wodonga. "We are always open to new members," Ms Finch said.
