ChildFund New Zealand is part of an international organisation that works to create a world free from child poverty, where no child suffers from preventable diseases or hunger, where no child is exploited or harmed, where every child feels cared for, where every child is strong and healthy in body and mind, educated and confident.
ChildFund New Zealand works in just a few developing countries, providing a deep level of support in the communities that need it most, over several years.
What better reason to race over 1/3 of the earth than to raise money for such a wholesome cause!
Cool Earth works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change.
They develop long-lasting partnerships with local communities and invest in three key areas:
Livelihood Support - Forest Health -
By doing so, Cool Earth has created a sustainable model which allows local communities to protect and look after the rainforest, rather than chop it down.
