The Graeme Dingle Foundation runs school-based programmes for thousands of Kiwis aged between 5 and 18.
These initiatives, including Kiwi Can, Stars, Career Navigator and Project K, along with MYND (an Aucklan based programme for youth offenders), aim to broaden horizons, offer opportunities and give young people the chance to become the next generation of successful parents, leaders and business people. Through the funding and delivery of the Kiwi Can programme, Supré Foundation will assist around 900 students from Papakura Primary and intermediate schools to receive training, support and guidance in building confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
The introduction of Kiwi Can in February 2017 means the life skills and value programme will be delivered to both schools by trained leaders, with every child attending a lesson once a week, every week of the school year.
"Research shows that early intervention is a young person's best hope for the future and the best way to set them on a healthy path in life. That is what we are setting out to do, with the help of Supré." Marion Short (CEO, Graeme Dingle Foundation.)
