Creating Brighter Futures for Kiwi Kids

1 in 4 Kiwi kids live in deprivation. For as little as $35 per month, Variety Kiwi Kid Sponsors can provide essentials that a child would otherwise go without, it might be basic clothing, shoes, stationery for school, warm bedding, medicine or an extra-curricular activity that helps them feel included.

Please become a Variety Kiwi Kid Sponsor and give a local child in need a brighter future. 

Variety - The Children's Charity is a champion for Kiwi kids; and with 1 in 4 New Zealand children growing up in deprivation our work is essential. Every year we help over 13,000 local children to have brighter futures.

Variety offers Kiwi kids and their families' targeted, flexible support to meet their specific needs. We help by providing the basic necessities, much-needed medical equipment, life-changing mobility needs, and innovative educational initiatives.

We work alongside schools, community agencies and healthcare professionals, tackling child deprivation so that one by one, Kiwi kids who urgently need our life-changing assistance are set up to reach their full potential in life.
