Spending time outside, playing sport, being active and being on the move is what makes a Kiwi child-hood so special... and so important. We know this because the Y has been part of New Zealand familiesfor more than 150 years.

COVID-19 has kept our kids inside, learning from screens, and away from their friends. When we re-open we know that our welcoming smiles will match those of our happy children - but there will be some empty spaces in our Y family - lockdown has brought job loss and more financial pressure than ever before.

We don’t want any Kiwi kids to miss out on living their best life - but we need your help. We fund our community support from our paying memberships. During the 7 weeks we’ve been closed, we’ve been continuing to support our people, with minimal funds coming in. Your donation will directly fund a child in your region.

With your help, we’ll be able to bring joy, freedom and fun back to Kiwi kids.
