Despite the significant challenges that have emerged globally with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, ChildFund New Zealand has been able to continuously push forward in enabling children, youth, and their communities, to thrive.
Even with lockdowns and border restrictions prohibiting international travel, ChildFund’s global teams continued to work well together, building new synergies by utilising technology to communicate and collaborate with one another.
This year, ChildFund’s Impact Report highlights many of the measurable outcomes we’ve achieved in our programme areas, alongside our partners in Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world.
The results are nothing short of remarkable.
With the committed support of over 13,000 Kiwis, we’ve raised $7.5 million to undertake life-changing intiatives in health and nutrition, education, livelihoods, child protection, water, sanitation and hygiene and disaster risk reduction, which truly enabled our dedicated communities to move even closer towards their goal of self-reliance (p.10).
Following an 18-month negotiation period, we also kicked off our $11.2 million NZD, five-year IMPACT programme with Aotearoa New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), just as we completed our four-year agriculture, dairy and economic development project with MFAT in Kenya, helping to improve farming practices, strengthen supply chains for milk and moringa, and improve livelihoods for hundreds of rural farmers (p.14).
And, we couldn’t have done it without your incredibly generous donations. Thank you.
We are very proud to share this report with you.
We believe you will find it informative and helpful to know how your donations have been used to enable children and youth to thrive in the 2021 financial year.
We sincerely thank you for your support.
