A solution is literally at our feet. Choose a challenge to complete for 40 hours over 21st - 23rd June, and ask your friends & family to sponsor you. It's that simple! Stuck for ideas?

and together, we can regreen our future. You can be part of a global movement, working with nature to restore forests – fast. We’ll partner with frontline communities to unlock our planet’s underground forest using Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR). For kids in Timor-Leste, who’ve lost 90% of their original forests, this would be a total game changer. You in?

“The World Vision 40 Hour Challenge is really special because it gets New Zealanders on board to help other people around the world in need. I think the coolest thing is giving back to people who are less fortunate than yourself.”

Stand with Pasquela to fight the impacts of climate change

Pasquela is one of many people in Timor-Leste already suffering the effects of climate change. Three years ago, she was studying at uni and her family had a thriving rice farm. Then a cyclone destroyed everything.

“My little sister had to leave school because we can’t pay for it. I had to drop out of uni too,” says Pasquela. It’s now a daily struggle for her parents to feed their children, and cyclones and droughts are only set to increase.

Join the World Vision 40 Hour Challenge now to stand with Pasquela and fight the impacts of climate change. Together, we can regreen our future.
