KidsCan caters for the physical and nutritional needs of Kiwi kids less fortunate than others. They provide food, clothing and basic healthcare in schools to enable disadvantaged children to be more engaged in their education and reach their full potential.
For children living in hardship, their disadvantaged lifestyle can impact their educational growth and lead to a lifelong pattern of underachievement. KidsCan breaks this cycle by providing simple things like food, shoes, socks and raincoats so kids can arrive at school ready and able to learn.
KidsCan aims to prevent children in hardship from becoming adults in hardship by giving them the start in life they deserve.
