EDU2022 Education Campaign

The Catalytic Foundation started the EDU2022 campaign this year to help schools and families in desperate need of digital devices and school resources for their children to learn with. 

"Families are struggling to put food on the table, let alone provide stationery. Glen Taylor School are helping with providing meals for children so they can learn while at school" Johanna Wrack, Vice Principal, Glen Taylor School  

With the help of Rockwell Automation and generous individual donations to the Catalytic Foundation we have been able to distribute 75 backpacks filled with school items, including 25 stationery packs and 20 new Chromebooks for children to have at home and school. However, more Chromebooks are needed.

"Working together to get children back to school is so important. Too many of our tamariki and mokopuna are not yet at school as more often than not, their families cannot afford back to school costs. Rising back to school costs are hurting our struggling and needy whānau. This is why this type of donation is so very much appreciated! Let us together help get our children back to school and give the education they both deserve and want!"  Darryl Evans, CEO Budgeting and Family Support Services
