KidsCan believe education equals opportunity, and their aim is to ensure every child in a decile 1-4 school in New Zealand has access to the basics most of us take for granted when growing up. As a reputable New Zealand charity, KidsCan strive 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 New Zealand children to reach their potential. KidsCan is a voice for children who cannot speak for themselves, bringing into focus what life is like for children living in poverty in New Zealand. Providing information and data about child welfare is vital to help people understand the statistics behind the stories.
