Our vision is, to see every tamaiti (child) starting primary school, honoured with a '5 KitBox', packed with love. The '5 KitBox' has learning tools including, school back pack, lunch box and drink bottle, school uniform, pencil case, underwear, socks, butterfly learning to write cards, school stationery, shoes. Plus a celebration range of birthday treats, birthday gift, reading and activity book, birthday banner, poppers, plates, balloons, and a special crafted birthday cake. All items relate to the child’s interests and are presented in a beautifully named celebration box with a note from us. Every '5 KitBox' is made as if the child was ours, all packed with care and love. Why? We acknowledge beginning school as the first major step for a child, the first steps towards education and independence and the first steps the child takes towards becoming a person making their way in the world. We do this by celebrating the child who is turning five with a 5 KitBox. We work with a diverse range of referral organisations whom identify children in need of support as they turn 5.
