The Kiwi Challenge Foundation is committed to helping the community through it's programmes and initiatives. Find out about our current focus below!



We want to get the youth of New Zealand active and excited about the outdoors! We also want them to develop into fine New Zealand leaders.

The ACTIV8 programme will encourage young Kiwis to become KCF ambassadors and highlight healthy, active living in their peer group and family community. We want to build a peer driven network of ambassadors and committees throughout Waikato secondary schools promoting activities that demonstrate the benefits of healthy, active living. We have developed some activities to get committees started, and will put emphasis on peer developed activities and initiatives. 

The programme will be focused on the 16-18y age group of secondary school students, with the goal of providing a pathway and encouragement to develop their character through the medium of the outdoors.

Our ACTIV8 programme is designed for secondary school students to promote healthy, active living in their schools.


We've designed some activities to get you started! Contact us for the extra information documents.
