A Word from our Founders

Through our adventures and professional lives, we have learned the value of having a dream, setting goals, perseverance, teamwork and sound values to fall back on in difficult times.

These key elements form the basis of the Foundation’s work.

We are a lucky country with our wonderful outdoors, our close communities, our willingness to get involved and our determination to succeed. It is these attributes that our programmes utilise to enable young New Zealanders to find a sense of direction and purpose in their lives.

We have dedicated a substantial part of our lives to the development of young people’s lives and we invite you to join us on this journey. Your help is crucial in ensuring that our next generation of Kiwi parents, business and community leaders can continue to develop the legacy of a positive, successful and caring New Zealand.
