Little Sprouts Kapiti was established in early 2017 by local resident and mum Sarah Yuile.
Originally Kapiti formed part of Little Sprouts Wellington - but it became clear over time that the Kapiti and Horowhenua region had many vulnerable families that required support.
Setting up a separate dedicated branch has enabled many more families to be reached across the Kapiti and Horowhenua region, from Paraparaumu up to (and including) Levin.
This branch continues to be run by Sarah Yuile (pictured above centre) with the support of a Kapiti-based committee and an ever-growing group of incredible local volunteers.
Our life-changing Little Sprouts baby boxes in Kapiti go out through social workers at Charity Partners such as:
- Birthright Kapiti
- The Salvation Army Kapiti
- Wesley Community Action's Family Start Program
- Raukawa Whanau Ora
- Women's Refuge Kapiti
