What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
P3 Foundation is New Zealand’s youth movement against poverty. We are made up of over 130 passionate volunteers driven by a collective desire to end extreme poverty in our generation. Because we are youth led, we are innovative, inclusive and experimental. We take risks because we believe every person deserves the chance to follow their dreams.
PFTF is a social experiment that educates consumer about fair trade and ethical consumerism. Using the ‘pay it forward’ concept, people become aware of the impact they make by thinking about what they purchase.
The annual SEED Programme engages high school students with the issue of extreme poverty and empowers them to address it directly providing workshops which enable participants to implement their own fundraising initiatives.
Each year P3 foundation and our supporters live on just NZ$2.25 a day for five days to raise awareness and funds for those living in extreme poverty in the Asia-Pacific region.
P3 Foundation hosts these annual conferences all over New Zealand each year. They give university students the chance to meet inspirational people in small groups to develop new skills and lasting connections.
This entrepreneurial challenge aims to create change agents and future leaders of social innovation. High school students come up with innovative and practical solutions for national or international social issues.
Since 2011 we have raised over $100,000 for development work in India, Burma, Indonesia and Tonga. We are absolutely open about where donations go. To end extreme poverty, we need to be smart about development. Good intentions aren’t enough. What we do has to be based on best practice. Development work must be holistic, empowering and sustainable. No one knows more about a community than the people in it, so our local partners put them at the forefront of their development projects.
