Our Community Programs

Our sessions tackle issues around homelessness, food security, disadvantage and disability. Children and families will not only learn about these issues, they will have the opportunity to directly make a difference to people in need.

Through our programs, KiP aims to build social awareness, develop leadership skills and empathy, and provide the fundamentals of how to become a future philanthropist. KiP works with children, parents and families across generations, delivering a range of regular and boutique programs.

Made with Love (MWL) is a Food Collective or Food Giving Circle utilising the power of community and networking to provide delicious, nutritious and hearty homemade meals, Made with Love, to those experiencing food insecurity.

KiP run a number of bespoke hands-on volunteering sessions (open to the public) throughout the year catered to children and their families. These sessions range from packing care kits to making scarves for our friends living on the streets. We work with a number of local grass-root organisations and endeavour to create a session that provides meaning to the charity as well as those participating.

KiP run 3 flagship events annually around youth homelessness (Hangout for the Homeless), strategic giving (Pitch for Change) and for those doing it tough during the holiday period (Gift of Giving).

Agents for Change is a tailor made program for schools to inspire and help shape future leaders. By fostering the values and ideals associated with philanthropy, our program will help create a positive context for an entire generation of young Australians, giving them the exposure and opportunities to take up responsibilities, learn leadership skills and, ultimately, make a difference in the world.
