: Branch News

The Branch Foundation was founded in July 2007. We are a small yet highly motivated and passionate New Zealand based not-for-profit international organisation.  As an International fundraiser, we support local organisations to provide aid and financial assistance for ethnic minorities, refugees, and underprivileged people. We work with organisations that are outside the scope of main humanitarian aid and support  communities that otherwise would get little or no support. The community members of our partner organisations work with us to establish their most urgent needs. They are the agents of change, that strive for quality of well being, independence and stability; we simply support their quest for a brighter future. Our strategic goals on welfare/poverty relief, sustainable community development and education, with the long-term objective of self-reliance, are the focus of our work with our partner organisations. We pride ourselves for being accountable and transparent.

A few words from supporters of The Branch Foundation

Chris Henderson- “At a time when our calls for decisive action in Burma seem to fall on deaf ears, and sanctions further provoke the junta to lash out against the powerless, it is only natural to support a grass-roots organisation with the courage and strategy to make positive and lasting change; if only our so-called leaders had that courage to do the same.”

Greg Wild- “What you are doing is deeply noble. I’m sure that you will get as much out of what you doing as the children you are doing it for.”

Dr. Susan Farrelly- “I am wholeheartedly in support of this project- the need is aching and obvious. Any project aiming to address these results of political inequity in which children are inevitably the victims, deserves all our support.”

Nick Braxton- “I’m massively impressed by the work that the Branch Foundation has been able to do, it’s a real testament to the dedication of the unpaid people that make it happen. Keep up the fantastic work!” 

Johanna Ludemann-Ravit- “The branch foundation was built from a warm loving person and her crew to help others. Thats how it should be: having an amazing idea and courage and turning it into action. Great work and good luck!”
