We know our climate is changing, and our everyday actions make a difference in the world we live in.
You and thousands of Kiwis joined the fight against hunger and injustice in Malawi through the World Vision 40 Hour Famine. You proved that when we act together, incredible things happen. Let's continue to show climate-vulnerable communities they don't fight alone.
Tap into your power to create positive change by becoming a climate advocate!

Over the weekend of 5th-7th June, thousands of young Kiwis took part in the World Vision 40 Hour Famine; raising life-changing money for the families and children of Malawi affected by climate change.
Despite the challenges we have all faced over the last few months, physical distancing was no match for awesome, inspiring young Kiwis like you.
Across the country, Kiwis participated in mufti days, sausage sizzles, bake-sales, carnivals and so much more! We were inspired by some crazy and brilliant fundraising ideas; from walking 40km in 40 hours to a 24-hour lock-in sleepover.
Thanks to your help, we can win the fight against hunger and injustice in Malawi. The funds you have raised will provide communities in Malawi with sustainable farming tools like seeds, watering systems and goats.
