Supporting children in our communities into school
We work very hard with the community, our supporters and donors to reduce the impact of financial strain on families living in material hardship, to ensure it is not a barrier to a child's education.
Every child turning 5 deserves to begin school confidently, and for some children, confidence means having a backpack, lunchbox, and a school uniform.
In February, we aim to help 130 five-year-olds start school. Without our assistance, the stress, anxiety, pressure, and often shame can hinder these young children from getting the start they need.
Let’s come together to support our tamariki in having the best school start and making the ultimate first impression on the most significant day of their short lives.
One child: $280
Two children: $560
Three children: $840
Four children: $1,120
Five children: $1,400
We aim to see every child in New Zealand start primary school set up with all the essentials they need.
Since our inception we have supported 3,441 tamariki.
We now need to support over 700 children into school each year, and we need your help.
Your donation will provide a child the gift of starting school with a backpack, books, lunchbox, drink bottle, pencil case and much more.
