Every day, more than 1 in 4 Kiwi kids go without the basics that most of us take for granted. This has a profound effect on their health, education and self-esteem.
We believe that every child deserves the same opportunities to reach their full potential. Variety provides tailored, flexible support to disadvantaged children in New Zealand. We work alongside schools, community agencies, social workers and healthcare professionals to identify children in need.
Variety provides disadvantaged children with basic essentials (such as warm bedding and school uniforms), one-off grants for additional needs (such as medical and mobility equipment) and access to extra-curricular activities (such as school camp or swimming lessons).
With our support, they have access to the same opportunities as other kids, a happier, healthier childhood and the foundation for a better future.
Variety is a registered charity with the New Zealand Charities Commission (CC24039), making donations tax refundable.
