Our Operational Policies and Guidelines

ChildFund New Zealand is a not-for-profit organisation changing children’s lives for good in developing countries. Lasting change is achieved through development work involving whole communities for a period of up to 20 years.

ChildFund New Zealand recognises te Tiriti o Waitangi and its commitment to participation, partnership and protection (manaakitanga; kaitiakitanga). We acknowledge the lessons Aotearoa’s history brings to the way we work. We are guided by Te Tiriti and by generosity of spirit and selflessness (aroha) in how we relate to our partnerships (rangapū) as we work together on shared goals with communities, supporters and donors (whanaungatanga). We believe in the authority of the communities ChildFund serves and their right to determine their own development pathway (rangatiratanga).

ChildFund New Zealand is an affiliate of the ChildFund Alliance, a global coalition of child focused organisations working to create opportunity for the deprived, excluded and vulnerable children of the world. Operating worldwide, it strives to eradicate the root causes and the effects of poverty on children by implementing meaningful and sustainable solutions leading to positive futures. ChildFund New Zealand holds itself accountable to its donors and beneficiaries and works in close collaboration with local partners to strengthen family, community, and social systems that support children’s healthy development and protection. The vision of ChildFund New Zealand is that of a world that:

  • Respects the dignity and worth of each child;
  • Enables child participation;
  • Promotes well-being, hope and resilience for families; and
  • Creates positive avenues for social development
