You can make a meaningful change in the life of a child.

Variety’s Kiwi Kid Sponsorship programme is one of a kind – just like each of the children we help.

We know that not all kids need the same things. While one child might need help with clothing, shoes, stationery and school camp, another might need bedding, a uniform or the chance to participate in an extra-curricular activity.

This unique, one-for-one programme ensures that funding is directed to meet the specific needs of the individual child you sponsor. 

For just $50 a month, your help as a sponsor will have a profound impact on the child’s health, education and wellbeing.

Children across New Zealand are waiting to be connected with a sponsor like you.
