Thank you, New Zealand, together we’ve given more Kiwi kids a place to dream.
As the lead partner of Variety’s Beds for Kids Programme, our Dream Beds initiative was designed to build awareness for the amazing work Variety does and raise money to provide beds and bedding for tamariki who need them most.
Rangitoto Coastline Clean Up
Maintaining NZ’s clean green image is a responsibility the whole community can get behind, and AAI recognised we could do our bit to help. So recently a group of staff volunteers rolled up their sleeves and teamed up with Sea Cleaners to spend a day cleaning up the Rangitoto Island coastline.
New training gear helps Otara soccer club
When you only have seven kids to make a full soccer team, instead of 11, things can be a little tough. Add to that a shortage of volunteers and coaches, and the financial strain of a club that’s endured multiple break-ins and thefts, and it could all seem too bleak to go on.
Helping students become financially literate

The annual Blue Light Kids Gone Fishin’ event is all about the simple things in life; hanging out with family, enjoying the sun as well as a morning’s fishing over the Waitemata Harbour at Wynyard Quarter. The Auckland event, held over the city’s anniversary weekend in late January, kick started a line of events throughout the country.
