Puddle Jumpers is a non profit, non-government organisation committed to responding to the social development needs of society's most vulnerable children and young people; priority of our work is reserved for children who do not live with their birth parents. We believe all kids matter, and deserve the right to engage in happy and fun experiences in their life.
Jump Over Puddles: We aim to empower children to recognise and express their individual abilities, interests, and talents, and to provide each child and young person with a transformative opportunity to grow and develop their own capacities and competencies. We aim to build resilience in kids to enable them to believe in themselves, to believe that anything is possible and help them ‘jump over puddles’ that they have in their own lives.
Jump in all the Puddles: We aim to enhance communiy cohesion, promote social inclusion, and encourage respect and tolerance for social diversity. We aim to provide opportunities for self-challenge and development and facilitate opportunities for new learning in a fun and safe atmosphere. We aim to share the happiness and adventure of being children and young people, and simply encourage kids to be kids, to ‘jump in all the puddles’.
