Our Purpose

“Our Vision is, to see every tamaiti starting primary school, honoured
with a 5 KitBox packed with


We believe that children who are set up with all the necessary learning tools to start school are much more likely to embrace learning.

The provision of a 5 KitBox is totally child centric designed to alleviate inequity for that child who is starting their school journey.
It is our belief that starting on the right foot connects our tamariki emotionally to a sense of wellbeing celebrating the concept of Mana Atua.

The issue we are addressing is inequity for chidrens’ education from day one of entering school.

We acknowledge beginning school as the first major step for a child, the first steps towards education and independence and the first steps the child takes towards becoming a person making their way in the world.

We do this by celebrating the child who is turning five with a 5 KitBox.

We work with a diverse range of referral organisations whom identify children in need of support as they turn 5.
