    Thousands of Kiwi kids go without the basics every day. We’re on a mission to change that.

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 $15 a month, you can join the thousands of New Zealanders dedicated to changing a child’s life.

Back to School Lunches with KidsCan

For some children, their biggest worry about lunch is whether they get a cheese and tomato versus a ham sandwich or if they have a yoghurt pot when they really want a packet of chips. The charity KidsCan is out to help all the children who go to school with no lunch at all.
