Xigo. Partnering and supporting our community.
Our ‘best for project’ philosophy, underpins our business outcomes for our clients.
However we also focus on important ‘best for community’ initiatives.
We partner with the following organisations who share in this unique little philosophy.
KidsCan – ‘best for impacting kids’.
Xigo proudly sponsor 28 children in need via KidsCan. It’s estimated that 295,000 Kiwi children live in hardship and often go to school hungry, wet, cold and stressed, impacting on their educational growth and potentially leading to a lifelong pattern of underachievement. KidsCan aim to break this cycle by providing simple things like food, shoes, socks, raincoats and healthcare. They start by supporting children at primary school age and then continue to offer support for as long as the child needs, right through to high school in some cases. We very much hope our monetary support will help make a positive difference and promote long-term change for these children, helping them achieve good educational outcomes and reach their full potential.
