KidsCan is helping Kiwi kids living in hardship reach their full potential and create brighter futures for themselves.
We provide Kiwi kids in need with food, clothing and health items at school, so they can get into the classroom in a position to learn. KidsCan does this because we believe that education equals opportunity, and all children, regardless of their social economic background should have an equal chance.
Over one in four New Zealand children live in hardship. As a reputable New Zealand charity, KidsCan strives to be the conduit for individuals, community, business and Government to co-operate in providing food, clothing and basic health care in schools, to enable all disadvantaged NZ children to reach their potential.
KidsCan delivers targeted programmes which remove the physical barriers preventing children in low decile schools from getting the most out of their education. These tangible initiatives currently support the education of thousands of disadvantaged New Zealand children in 621 low decile schools across New Zealand ensuring they get through the school gate in a better position to learn.
Our key aim at KidsCan is to ensure children less fortunate have the same opportunities as others to take advantage of their education.
