Diving For a Cause
That Touches Lives… 

This is a fun and unique foundation, combining a passion for fishing with a desire to leave each community they visit a better place than it was when they arrived.

Divers arrive in New Zealand, where they spend 5 days spearfishing, a sport that they all love. But this team is different and there is work to be done. These fishermen and women will harvest their catch and then donate the fish to the local Maori tribe, feeding many hungry indigenous families.

In addition, the team will spend several community service days with the Maori people, working on various educational and environmental projects. They will work with the local school, maybe teaching the young children to snorkel and to appreciate the wonders of the ocean. Funds will be used to start a marine science program in the school, and to purchase P.E. equipment for the kids.

This group will also be actively working with a women’s shelter in Whakatane, New Zealand. Our donations will be used to purchase backpacks for children living at the shelter and fill them with books, writing tablets, pens, markers, crayons and other school supplies.  Additional funds will be used to purchase gifts and needs for the women currently living in this shelter, a secret and safe place to help these courageous women to heal.
