Transforming Young Lives Forever
In New Zealand
The Graeme Dingle Foundation runs school-based programs afor thousands of kiwis aged between 5 and 8
Our Supre Foundation partnership with the Graeme Dingle Foundation provides funding for two of their most important school based programs; Kiwi Can and Stars – taking Kiwi kids from surviving to thriving!
Kiwi Can Program
The Kiwi Can program focuses on building resilience, self confidence and life skills to Kiwi kids, with the aim to broaden horizons, offer opportunities and give young people the chance to become the next generation of successful parents, leaders and business people.
To date, Supré Foundation has provided funding for the delivery of the Kiwi Can program which will assist around 900 students from Papakura Primary and Intermediate schools. Students receive the life skills and value program delivered 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 Foundation.” – Jenny Stiles (CEO, Graeme Dingle Foundation)
In 2018, we are also funding the Graeme Dingle Foundation ‘Stars’ program in Papakura High School, so that students can receive challenging and fun experiences in a supportive environment.
The Stars program focuses on 13 year old students and is a 12 month mentoring program that supports, motivates and positively reinforces Year 9 students during their first year at high school.
