Jump in all the puddles!

Aims & Objectives

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 matters, 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 community 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’.

The Ripple Effect

We aim to provide opportunities for volunteers (especially young adults) to be involved in their community and open their hearts to the wonderful world of helping others.

We aim to provide volunteers with training, support and opportunities to expand their own development, promote social awareness, social compassion, and social leadership. Encouraging our volunteers to develop a social partnership to enhance both their own lives and the lives of the children and young people they engage with.

We aim for volunteers to understand and value, the impact that their actions and hearts can have on others in the community, especially those in need, thereby enhancing young adults’ sense of social community, interaction and belonging.
