Giving all Kiwi kids a fair start.


Providing the essentials, so Kiwi kids can learn.

KidsCan believes that education is a child’s ticket out of poverty, and gives them the opportunity for a better future. But kids can’t learn when they are cold, wet and hungry.

So we partner with schools and early childhood centres across New Zealand to give the 1 in 5 Kiwi kids affected by poverty the essentials: food, clothing and health products.

Across New Zealand we
provide essentials to:
