Westpac is the foundation partner of the Middlemore Foundation's Mana-ā-riki programme. The goal is to help children to reach their potential and be successful by bringing digital education into classrooms, in-school health clinics and support for a safer, healthier home environment.
Westpac seized the opportunity to make a real difference by supporting an innovative initiative that addressed the systemic issues preventing children from fulfilling their potential. We believe this represents an opportunity to help break the cycle of poverty and invests in societal growth.
It's not just about ensuring the wellbeing of these children in need, addressing this growing issue is of critical importance to the social and economic prosperity of Auckland and New Zealand as a whole.
