Time is running out for more than a million children.

Almost 1.4 million children are at imminent risk of death this year, as widespread famine looms in South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen.

With your generous donations, we can save many lives.

Every child has the right to play. And dig. And get dirty. And hunt for bugs. It's the Kiwi way.

So does Four Seasons Kindergarten in Taupo. Every week, rain or shine, their "Bush Kindy" gets little ones climbing trees, rolling down hills, and exploring the outdoors!

Share this video if you think there's nothing wrong with kids playing outside and getting their hands dirty!

These kids from Finlayson Park School will give you goosebumps.
For decades, kiwi children in state care were left vulnerable to abuse. Despite that, they have received no official Government apology.

What needs to be put into place in order to protect and care for all of New Zealand's children?

Would you put your name to this document agreeing how all children should be cared for?

Carolyn Henwood: Time has come for New Zealanders to clearly state how children should be treated

It's time to combat the "South Auckland" stereotype. And Finlayson Park School is doing just that.

Every child has a right to a good home, but Kiwi songwriter Mitch James knows exactly what it is like to not have a roof over your head.

From living on the street to riding high in the charts

Less than a year ago Mitch James was busking for a living in Europe, but he was also homeless and living on the streets. Now, the 21-year-old Kiwi singer-songwriter is riding high in the charts with his hit Move On.

Fares is six years old. He has never been to school but he’s had many different jobs. He’s waited tables, sold vegatables and sweets and washed floors. We think he deserves the chance to have an education.
