Kiwi Kid Sponsorship

At Variety we believe that every child is special and has the right to good health and education. During 2012 we undertook a research project to identify issues facing today's Kiwi kids, and overwhelmingly your feedback reflected concerns about the growing divide between the 'haves' and 'have nots.'

Our response? Kiwi Kid Sponsorship. Together we can level the playing field to give all Kiwi kids a good start in life. Kiwi Kid Sponsorship enables sponsors to connect and create change in the lives of disadvantaged Kiwi kids. For as little as $35 per month, sponsors can help families and caregivers ensure their child's basic needs are being met.

When you sponsor a child through Variety, your regular donation will help to provide a disadvantaged Kiwi kid with the basics that their family/caregiver is unable to afford .  This includes, but is not limited to:



Since our January 2013 launch, we have connected over 800 Kiwi kids with sponsors, and while this is a fantastic start, it is just the beginning. With around 285,000 Kiwi kids living in poverty, there is much work to be done.
