The Reality of Back to School for Kiwi Kids

Deputy Principal of Nga Iwi School describes the reality for children living in low income areas. Too many Kiwi kids are missing out on school and all the opportunities that come with education because of poverty.
For $50 per month you can be the difference between a Kiwi kid missing school and thriving in it.

More than 1300 children in New Zealand are waiting for a sponsor like you.

Sponsor a child to give them the essentials: clothing, bedding, uniform – the things they need to enjoy school, and take part in their community.

Every day 1 in 5 Kiwi kids goes without the essentials people take for granted.

This has a profound impact on a child’s health, education and wellbeing.
