Sponsor a Kiwi kid

Becoming a Variety Kiwi Kid Sponsor allows you to make a real difference in the life of your sponsored child by giving them access to the basics their family is unable to afford.

“Thank you so much for my new school uniform, new school shoes and especially my warm clothes for winter. I feel so happy when I go to school now because all my class don’t tease me anymore. I want to give you a big hug … you are my Angel.”       Joseph

What other Kiwi Kid Sponsors are saying

"I can't help all the kids but I can make a difference to one."

"We are helping a child start life – and taking a little stress off parents."

"I know we're making a real difference to a Kiwi kid's life and that's great."

"When I receive a letter from my special friend and hear what she has been doing – priceless!"

"I have three children, my eldest is eight – the same age as Athena. I also have a six-year-old daughter and four-year-old son. Sponsorship is a valuable lesson for them, that helping those in need is important. It also helps them realise how lucky they are having a warm house, warm clothes, lunch every day."
