Over the past few years, we’ve heard a lot about child poverty. With 305,000 Kiwi kids growing up in families that are struggling, it’s time to shift the conversation from, “do we really have a problem?” to, “yes, there’s a problem, now how can we work together to fix it?”
#DearNewZealand offers an insight into what poverty really looks like for children in our country, as told through real letters from real Kiwi kids. It gives every New Zealander a chance to join the conversation about how we could solve child poverty.
The aim of #DearNewZealand is to encourage Kiwis to talk about what’s happening to the kids in our communities who are going without, and offers actions that can be taken right now which will make a tangible difference for our most vulnerable children. Let’s stop. Let’s think. Let’s share. Let’s discuss. And let’s do something today to help a Kiwi kid in need. Together, we can beat child poverty, one child at a time.
