I’ve been taking steps to support change in my neighbourhood since motherhood has helped me realize that our city needs more child-friendly outdoor spaces (more parks for kids to play in as there are so many more people living downtown) and while I’ve been active on a few fronts, today I heard some promising news about a deadline for a park that is scheduled to be ready in a few weeks!!

Twenty-five years ago the Chernobyl nuclear accident dramatically changed the lives of the people living in the nearby areas. These days, however, families living in Chernobyl-affected areas can enjoy a normal healthy life and give birth to healthy children.
My name is Ben “Diggy” Atkinson. At the beginning of 2015 I spearheaded a movement to feed impoverished kiwi kids from three low decile schools (Linwood Avenue, Te Waka Unua and Aranui), where we managed to make and deliver 8,000 school lunches.
Could you play your part? Are you or your organisation already doing great work for children and young people?
