Every month our supporters dig deep so Kiwi kids in need can be nourished, warm, and ready to learn – and ultimately have a fair start. It’s not always easy, we know, to keep giving - and our supporters occasionally wonder ‘what difference do I really make?’
By helping to remove some of the barriers these children face to learning, our supporters are giving them the best chance of a bright future.
Verity’s life could have turned out so differently. As a child, poverty and hunger threatened to take away her hopes of getting the education she deserved. Now in her third year studying politics at Canterbury University, she aims to become a politician so she can ensure no child goes through what she did.
KidsCan gave her “those little things of hope”. “Sometimes the only food I’d get a day would be the stuff from KidsCan. Just someone showing that they care about you, you can’t even imagine the impact that has one kids.”
Verity was able to flourish thanks to her aunt who gave her the stability she craved – and her own determination to seize every opportunity that came her way.
We’re now so proud to call Verity one of our KidsCan ambassadors, speaking out so that other kids can feel seen.
