Helping families make ends meet in Kiribati

Helping families make ends meet in Kiribati

“Beware of little expenses. A small leak can sink a big ship.” Benjamin Franklin.

In Kiribati it can be a daily struggle to make ends meet. Incomes are low, homes are overcrowded and there are limited resources around. So being super careful with money becomes even more important.

With thanks to supporters, like you, our team in Betio have put together this video to help increase awareness in the community about budgeting and saving.

Our work in Kiribati

The video is part of wider ChildFund project in Kiribati around building more resilience households.

For four years ChildFund Kiribati has been working with communities in Betio and the team has developed strong, trusted relationships with local families and  a range of government and community stakeholders through the delivery of community development assistance programming. 

Betio is located in Kiribati's capital South Tarawa, where about a third of the country's approximately 119,000 population live. Betio, is the most densely populated areas of South Tarawa with extended family members living in one household. These households also often lack key infrastructure and facilities, meaning that access to clean water and sanitation facilities is limited. 

ChildFund is working in Kiribati with the community on projects around learning and engagement opportunities, child protection and also household and community resilience. Made possible through support from ChildFund New Zealand supporters and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Impact Programme.
