What does the community have to say about Kids on f.o.o.t?
What do parents have to say about Kids on f.o.o.t?

“It gives me great pleasure to write on behalf of the trustees, staff and patients of Te Omanga Hospice, to thank you most sincerely for your kind donation of $225.10 towards the work of the hospice which was raised by the children and their families ...
 
The concert that the children performed for the patients and volunteers in day centre was a true blessing for everyone.  Everyone's spirits were raised by the beautiful singing and poetry presented by the children of your School Holiday Programme. 
Thank you for your desire to give back to the community through the children and in so doing, teaching the children about the hospice”
Biddy Harford, CEO

 Kids on f.o.o.t. in step with Habitat (Habitat for Humanity News)
Posted on: 23 October 2010

"During the Sept/Oct school holidays, the Kids on f.o.o.t. holiday programme (Kids on Faith of One Touch) based in Petone under the direction of Lealofi Nanai, chose to learn about housing need in NZ and participated in some in-house activities, including making model fales and fundraising.  Tina Francis, Resource Development Manager at Habitat, visited the programme in the first week of the holidays and told the children about Habitat’s work.  She was accompanied by Mat Keys and his family, who had all volunteered in Samoa to help rebuild fales following the tsunami and were able to share their photos and experiences with the children. 
 
In the second week, the children visited the Habitat house build at 20 Leicester Street with lots of food to share and were also able to have fun with the Global Village team on site, ask them some questions and play a few games.  The older children participated with enthusiasm banging in nails on the front fence under construction.  Congratulations to Lealofi and her leadership team on this wonderful holiday programme which attempts to teach children how they can participate and add value to their community from a young age."


“Thank you Kids on f.o.o.t for making such a difference in my child in just one day!  Usually shy around new people and does not like to do things without her dad or big sister, today was a huge success.  She had such a great time and is still telling her dad all about her rock climbing like spiderman and all the friends she's made...”
