Kiwi Outreach

Kiwi Outreach wants to help struggling families with the huge expense of sending their children to school.

Often in life things simply go wrong, loss of a job, health issues, marriage split, or the business fails.

And it is through those times we can help. It is about Kiwis Helping Kiwis.

Our Mission Statement:

Encourage, Uplift, and Inspire people to live a life of purpose and hope.

“Investing in families: nurturing relationships”

Supporting people in Cambridge

Kiwi Outreach wants to help struggling families with an emphasis on school student’s needs like school uniforms, stationery, laptops, school activities and camps. 

Through the generous support of local benefactors, we are able to support local families and students through the schooling years through our Student Sponsorship Program. We supply full uniforms, PE & sporting uniform and equipment, laptop, trips and other educational needs. We all know how expensive schooling can be, and so do the lovely people who support us. But, we go further than that. We work within the family through the years too, offer support and friendship. Our partner agency at Cambridge House supports with budgeting as this is a requirement to receive funding from us for full student sponsorship.

We have filled all our 2021 sponsorship positions

Changes in 2021

This year we will be implementing some new programs designed around supporting youth.

As well as the new services being for the children we sponsor, it will be for youth in the wider Cambridge community.

We are very excited about this and will keep you informed.

A word on donations

Kiwi Outreach has a very good vetting process in place, as we know you want to ensure your money is getting to the right people. We interview every applicant, we look at their budget, some get budgeting services. 100% of all monies to Kiwi Outreach goes to the people we help. The board members are volunteers. We have people donating specific funds solely for our minimal administration costs. We have support from a local lawyer and accountant who also provide their services for free. 

Our commitment: 100% of the money donated stays in Cambridge.

Our Process

School Student Sponsorship
This is a long term relationship for us. We walk alongside the student through his/her entire high school life. Everything from laptop, uniform, PE gear, school trip, everything except school donations. The high school bill us direct, we pay them direct. You should make your application through Cambridge Community House, 193 Shakespeare St, Leamington as it will require a full budget interview with a budgeting consultant.
