Varietys Response Recognition of the complex, unique nature of each childs circumstances Need for flexible support, tailored to each childs individuals needs Varietys Kiwi Kid Sponsorship Programme fills this gap
Currently helps 2,700 children, providing the essentials each child would otherwise go without basic clothing, shoes, school stationery, warm bedding, school uniform, medicine, or school camp
Support extends beyond the physical, to psychological including self-esteem, confidence, and being able to fit in with their peers.
