KidsCan is helping Kiwi kids living in hardship reach their full potential and create brighter
futures for themselves.

We provide Kiwi kids in need with food, clothing and health items at school, so they can get into the classroom in a position to learn. KidsCan does this because we believe that education equals opportunity, and all children, regardless of their social economic background should have an equal chance.

For just $20 a month, you can join the thousands of New Zealanders dedicated to changing a child’s life.

Shoe Distrubtion Event at Southern Cross Campus

Thanks to our friends at SC Johnson, who are the lead supporter of our ‘Shoes for Kids’ programme, over 1200 shoes were delivered to kids at Southern Cross Campus in our biggest shoe order this year.

SC Johnson, whose household product ranges includes the KIWI® shoe product, did a great little demo with their shoe deodorizer showing the kids how to ensure their new shoes always smell nice. The kids now include this as part of their everyday routine!
