We start something.

“I’m so happy that you are my daughters mentor because she is excited to have you in her life. Each time before you come to pick her up, she counts down the hours and minutes which makes me happy that someone, meaning you, has put a spark back in that little girls eyes."

Invest In a Child's Future​​

When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters, you directly support tamariki (young people) in your hapori whānui (wider community). Even a small amount can have a huge impact in starting something, making a difference in the lives of the tamariki around you.

Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs a young person with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential.​​
