It is a sad reality that many New Zealand youth live in families who struggle to put food on the table and a roof over their heads, so the chance to do anything extra like play rugby, or learn the guitar is an impossible dream. Variety Have a Go Scholarships provide young people with the chance to participate in extra-curricular activities.
These experiences help children to build confidence, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. We'd love all Kiwi kids to have access to these opportunities.
Variety Have a Go Scholarships provide up to $500 to enable Kiwi kids to ‘have a go’ at an extra-curricular activity. Funds awarded may be used for:
To qualify, the child must be 10-18 years and in school. They don’t have to be sporting superstars or academic whizz kids – just Kiwi kids who are missing out.
