KidsCan Charitable Trust is pleased to announce it has received sponsorship and in-kind donations valued at over $59,000 from Byo-One. The partnership between KidsCan and Byo-One Limited will enable KidsCan to assist more children living in poverty to get the help they need through the school they attend.  KidsCan’s programmes provide children with the basics, a raincoat, shoes, socks, food at school and health and hygiene care through the programmes 350 schools throughout New Zealand.

Jan Clark, KidsCan’s General Manager of marketing and fundraising, says “We are delighted to welcome Byo-One to our family of sponsors. Their support will enable KidsCan to do even more for the children we support”.

Byo-One Limited is a family business based in Auckland. Our goal is to deliver safer and affordable hygiene solutions to businesses in New Zealand. We are focussed on partnering with organisations working within poorer communities to assist in creating an enabling environment for people within these communities.

Kobus Marais, Byo-One’s Director says “We partnered with Kidscan as they are passionate and focussed on supporting Kiwi children in communities of need. Many of the children from these communities have compromised immune systems due to poor nutrition and hygiene.”

“The Kidscan schools program is focussed on supporting their education; healthy children are receptive in the classroom enabling them to be present at school. Good hand hygiene is essential to reduce the overall risk of infection. We felt the Byotrol product range would provide Kidscan with a highly effective and safe hygiene solution. To demonstrate the effectiveness of Byotrol we donated products and installed hand foam dispensers at four trial schools in the Northland.”

Byotrol is a non-alcohol based hygiene technology which is deadly to a long list of nasty bacteria, fungi and viruses, but harmless to all other living things. So Byo-One products are safe for your skin, around your children, pets and in your homes. 

Byo-One are committed to supporting Kidscan to help them achieve their vision of a New Zealand where less fortunate children have equal opportunity to make a positive contribution to society by donating 5% of all business to business sales and 10% of all web sales to Kidscan.
