We're so grateful you joined our mission! Thank you for making a commitment to helping provide the essentials for Kiwi kids in need.
For a child in hardship, your monthly donation will give them what they need to participate in learning, and have the opportunity for a better future.
Together, we're giving all tamariki a fair start at life.
Your generosity gives children in need the essentials they deserve: healthy food, a warm jacket, shoes and socks, and access to health products. Your support means they can focus on just being kids.
Last year, members of The KidsCan Village helped to provide children at school and early childhood centres with:
"I gave one little boy his new shoes today.... He spent the next 10 minutes running up and down seeing how fast he could go!" - KidsCan partner ECE teacher
"One of our staff members brought KidsCan on board. When the supplies arrived, there was a collective breath out. Now we have a big supply where staff can very quickly get a student what they need, be it shoes or food. Over the last year I’ve seen kids opening up more and more, and turning up to class in a better position to learn and engage." - KidsCan partner school principal
As a member of The KidsCan Village, your monthly donations make a real difference. Teachers and principals tell us just what an impact you make for their tamariki:
“We had a new family in and I gave them KidsCan shoes and socks, and the mother was just blown away. She was just about in tears.” - KidsCan partner school principal
“Part of my job as a teacher is to find out what each child's personal talent is and help them to realise that. When we don't have to worry about feeding and clothing our kids, we can just focus on guiding them. Our job is to take away all the stress from kids' lives, and let them play, because then they can learn. And that's the start in life that they deserve.” - KidsCan partner ECE teacher
"It has made such a difference having KidsCan in our school and having it as part of our family. It has made a huge impact on our families. The smile on their faces when they get a jacket, the smile on their faces when they get new shoes, the full bellies and warm tummies and the way the children are - that’s the difference KidsCan makes for us." - KidsCan partner ECE teacher
