The Foundation for Youth Development (FYD) has launched an awareness campaign – Turning Bullies into Friends – in a bid to raise awareness and reduce bullying in schools. This month FYD and campaign ambassador Bernice Mene are encouraging people to help change a Kiwi kid’s life by donating $20 a month so they can run their Kiwi Can programme in more schools. Sadly, 45,000 Kiwi kids report being bullied every week. FYD is confident its primary and intermediate school-based programme, Kiwi Can, plays an important role in ridding New Zealand schools of bullying. Visit fyd.org.nz/bullying for more information.
