Kia māia: Be bold, Improving the wellbeing of children living in poverty
May 20, 2019
Kiwis believe in giving people a fair go. Improving the wellbeing of children living in poverty fits with these values.
Wellbeing is not just a trendy name for income or standard of living. Kia māia: Be bold shows how it is a powerful idea that goes to the heart of what "a fair go" in life requires.
We discuss how some people struggle to convert income and other resources into a good life. For those people, increasing income is not enough to increase their wellbeing. To address the negative effects of child poverty and give all Kiwi kids a fair go, additional support, often focused on the needs of individuals and their families, will be required.
