Invest in the future of our tamariki
“He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.” This Māori proverb – “What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people” – resonates deeply with the philosophy of I Have a Dream.
We believe that children deserve the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive despite material hardship. We’ve been bringing that dream to life in New Zealand since 2003. And it is people like you who can help in a simple yet powerful way: By donating to our work.
Donating to I Have a Dream not only benefits our Dreamers, it’s deeply rewarding for you, too. Your donation empowers Kiwi kids to navigate their own path to academic and life success. It’s an investment in their future, and in the future of New Zealand. Every $1 invested in a Dreamer will deliver a $20 return on investment to New Zealand’s economy.
Invest in the future of our tamariki by financially supporting I Have a Dream through a recurring or one-off donation.Contact Us
Blair and Georgie Knight have been supporting I Have a Dream since 2017. Here is what they have to say about our programme.
“I Have a Dream is helping to address a major problem that concerns us. We like the strategy – we think the longevity of the programme from the ground up as opposed to a short term quick fix provides for a much greater chance of long term success. Children being assisted from their first class at school and continue through to university , while also providing a liaison between students and family, we see as a winning formula. We were also particularly impressed with the programme in that it assists a large number of students who wish to be involved, not just one or two chosen children.
Scott Gilmour and the IHAD team are exceptional. Their genuine energy, drive, commitment and focus to the programme will see it continue to expand. Hopefully, in time, we will see it rolled out nationally to communities in need. This will be to the benefit of not just individuals but the entire country.”
