Reducing the financial impact of starting school,
for families living in material hardship.
Our vision is to see every child living in poverty, start primary school set up with all the essentials that the child needs.
It is our belief that starting our children off on the right foot connects them emotionally to a sense of ‘Well Being’ (Mana Atua) and makes them much more likely to embrace learning.
“Carter loved it all! (And so did his sisters ha-ha). He particularly liked his new paw patrol underwear and Te Reo number cards – he can now count in Te Reo. He has also been asking to wear his new shoes. We’ve packed the rest of the goodies away, hidden from his little sister. He is very much looking forward to his next school visit as well”.
