Youth Child Welfare Kids 4 Charity

Pillars is a charity dedicated to supporting some of the the over 20,000 children of prisoners in New Zealand who are sadly over 9 times more likely to go to prison as adults.

No child grows up dreaming of going to prison and these children deserve a chance of hope and happiness and to grow into positive living adults like all children. Mentors can make a huge difference to how they feel about their place in the world.

This Children of Prisoner's Week we are launching a campaign to get 20 children off our waiting list for a Pillars mentor. We need your support to make it happen.

The direct cost of funding a mentoring match for one year is $3,000 to recruit train and support a volunteer mentor and give a child of a prisoner the hope and guidance they need.

Your donation can help be the difference for one more child to come off our waiting list and get the gift of a mentor and help make generational change.

I am proud to be supporting Pillars and Children of Prisoners Week so more children of prisoners can get the support they need. Through this campaign we hear their voices,we see their innocence, and we are reminded that these are just children. They have not committed any crimes, they do not aspire to go to prison, and they deserve to have dreams and the resources to realise them. It is so important that we support children of prisoners to have the kind of life we want all children to have, and to help create the communities that we all deserve. - Miiriama Kamo, Pillars ambassador
