Wow! ChildFund New Zealand is 21!!

I’ve been super privileged to have been working here at ChildFund New Zealand for just over a year and it’s gone extremely fast (then again doesn’t the saying go “Time flies when you’re having fun”?). I’m proud to say I’m part of the Sponsor Support team which can be a tad challenging at times but all in all it’s probably got to be the most rewarding job I’ve ever had!

When I first moved to Auckland I never imagined I would be in this line of work but now that I am I couldn’t see myself doing anything else!!

The group of people here at ChildFund New Zealand is such a bubbly warm welcoming ‘family’ and I’m so glad I am able to be a part of a team making positive changes in the lives of children and their communities in developing countries.
Being able to speak to sponsors about the joys of making a positive difference in another person’s life and building a bond with the child and family as well is absolutely amazing!

Reading some of the stories of the children we are connecting with caring New Zealanders can be extremely heartbreaking but seeing the success stories makes everything truly worthwhile.

Happy 21st birthday ChildFund New Zealand!! Super glad I am able to bear witness to this amazing milestone!!
