What your support means for a child in need:
Equality means having the same status, rights and opportunities as everyone else. Sadly in New Zealand thousands of children live in hardship and this impacts on the quality of their lives and their chances of reaching their full potential in the future.
Without three meals a day, warm clothing, shoes and basic healthcare, disadvantaged children turn up to school cold, hungry and unable to learn. They struggle to keep up in class and over time can lead to a lifelong pattern of isolation and underachievement.
Through the ‘In Our Own Backyard’ programme, you can help a disadvantaged child get a better start in life. Your monthly contribution of $15 (less than 50 cents a day) will enable KidsCan to provide a child with the essentials they need to get through the school gates in a position to learn.
