The Graeme Din­gle Foun­da­tion is the suc­cess­ful youth char­ity named in recog­ni­tion of Kiwi ad­ven­turer Sir Graeme Din­gle who founded the not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion with his part­ner Jo-anne Wilkin­son in 1995.

Over 20 years ago, Graeme Din­gle and Jo-anne Wilkin­son had a vi­sion to im­prove New Zealand’s neg­a­tive youth statis­tics. They have helped 250,000 young Ki­wis be more con­fi­dent, find pur­pose and di­rec­tion, and achieve suc­cess.

The Graeme Din­gle Foun­da­tion con­tin­ues to run school-based pro­grammes for thou­sands of Ki­wis aged be­tween five and 18— Kiwi Can, Stars, Ca­reer Nav­i­ga­tor and Project K, along with MYND (an Auck­land based pro­gramme for youth of­fend­ers). These ini­tia­tives aim to broaden hori­zons, of­fer op­por­tu­ni­ties and give young peo­ple the chance to be­come the next gen­er­a­tion of suc­cess­ful par­ents, lead­ers and busi­ness peo­ple.
