Kiwi Fuelcards is delighted to be lending a helping hand to the Life Education Trust in the Far North.
Life Education connects with more than 250,000 children every year to educate and empower them to make healthy choices so they can live full and healthy lives. The charity teaches children about their body, friendships, their identity, food and nutrition and helpful and harmful substances.
The charity is run by a group of dedicated volunteers and in the Far North alone, the educators travel over 25,000 kilometres each year, visiting over 80 schools from Te Hapua in the Far North to Dargaville, Maromaku, Russell and the East Coast.
The most popular team member of the Life Education Trust is Harold the Giraffe, who helps share the important messages being taught in the well known bright yellow caravan. In the Far North, the Trust educators visits primary schools, kura and some high schools, as well as being available to preschool children.
The Life Education Trust New Zealand was formed in 1988 and Life Education Trust Far North was established just a year later in 1989, being one of the first in the country. There are now 32 education units nationwide.
Life Education uses a preventative approach, using a philosophy that focuses on creating a sensitivity to values which lead to an understanding and appreciation of human life. This enables tamariki to make informed decisions about any negative influences that might impede them reaching their full potential.
We’re proud to support this incredibly important work in New Zealand’s Far North. To learn more about this amazing national charity, visit www.lifeeducation.org.nz.
