When a child thrives, the world thrives!

about uS

We see the potential in every child. And we know you see it too.

Since 1938, ChildFund has been working alongside communities around the world to help children flourish. Because when every child thrives, the world will thrive.

our impact

Within the context of an increasingly challenging world, the work you help support is more critical than ever. With the support of generous Kiwis, ChildFund can work alongside communities to find solutions that improve access to clean water, build education and health centers, support systems for protecting children, improve income generation, provide humanitarian relief, and better prepare for disasters.

our approach

It takes a holistic approach to help children thrive. In our work alongside communities, we are guided by a tried-and-tested methodology that ensures we consider all the elements it takes to address barriers and unlock every child’s future.
The ultimate goal is for every community to reach a point of self-reliance, where local organisations and families can continue their journey independently.
