Recently released child poverty statistics show that a shocking 143,700 Kiwi kids are living in poverty.

2,500 children are on our waiting list hoping for a sponsor like you. 

Become a sponsor for $50 a month to provide a Kiwi kid living in poverty with the essentials they need to thrive – including school uniforms, sturdy shoes and warm bedding.

Every day 1 in 8 Kiwi kids go without the essentials people take for granted.

This has a profound impact on a child’s health, education and wellbeing.
