"It Takes a Village Hub (NZ)" is a registered charity based in Canterbury. We provide baby and toddler bundles to families that need a little extra help, for whatever reason in the Canterbury region. The bundles are free to families that apply - there is no means testing or judgement, we are here to help where we can.

Baby Bundles launched in 2018, and toddler bundles in 2019 - to date we have provided over 1000 bundles to families in Canterbury, and as the need keeps growing, so do we. We believe that by helping each other we are helping our community to foster the old saying that it takes a village to raise a child, and we are proud and honored to have been able to support the families that come to us.

We couldn't do this without the generous support of local and NZ businesses, the members of our It Takes A Village Facebook groups, and the many volunteers in the background.

An ITAV Baby bundle is a care package families and individuals struggling to attain the essentials and the items they will need for their child from prem babies to the age of 1.

They contain essential items such as clothing, bedding, nappies, wipes, bath product, and toys to name a few.

We believe no baby or child should be without essential items such as warm clothing and bedding.

Our registered charity provides baby and toddler bundles to families in need, we do not means test anyone who approaches us for help, but we do encourage them to seek help for themselves first within our group. To provide these bundles we rely on donations from our community, but the demand is heavily outweighing the donations – we need your help to provide the consumable items in these bundles – and it doesn’t have to be much!
