Spark Foundation, a charitable arm of Spark New Zealand announced three new partnerships with Code Club Aotearoa, Digital Natives Academy and 21C Skills Lab aimed at helping young New Zealanders to successfully navigate their digital futures.
Each year Spark gives the foundation a grant to distribute amongst community social good organisations with a focus on digital enablement and education. These new partnerships exemplify Spark Foundation’s vision that no young New Zealander gets left behind in the digital world.
The partnerships follow the end of the Spark Foundation’s five-year commitment to Manaiakalani Education Trust and the development of Givealittle to become a largely self-funding platform. Givealittle is owned and operated by the Spark Foundation, which has grown to become a household name as New Zealand's crowdfunding platform for social good.
