We want more kids participating in activity and sport and believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore and play. Many clubs, community groups and schools have a very limited amount of sports equipment and financial resource to maintain enough sports equipment to go around. It is our goal to ensure that no child is sitting down during break times because the supply of equipment was exhausted. We grant equipment to identified groups that need support.
Physical activity dramatically increases a child’s sense of well-being enhancing their natural capacity for self-motivated learning. It helps to build critical and creative thinkers, inspires curiosity, builds resilience and encourages more effective learning and most importantly – It Breaks Down Social Barriers!
For some kiwi kids, their school break times are the only opportunity that they are exposed to, to be physically active each day. When children are inspired and understand the importance of play, we are able to achieve change. Physical activity is often the catalyst to breaking down social boundaries, our ambassadors inspire kids to be involved in group play.
The iSPORT Foundation provides a platform that enables New Zealand youth aged 14-18 to raise the necessary funds to achieve their goals in the sport they love, no matter their circumstances. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to fulfil their sporting dreams. Our crowdfunding platform is a successful medium that empowers kids to connect and engage with their local community and wider network to attract donations to their campaign.
