Our Mission Makes A Difference

Walk’n on water was established with the purpose to offer support networks to young troubled teens that are perhaps caught in a family environment or peer situation that’s not ideal. It’s to open communication channels, create a safety net of trust and to give teens a new perspective on options when in tough situations. Walk’n On Water (Wow) is funded by your local churches and was established by a man called Dave Diggs of Canterbury, New Zealand. Dave’s known to donate NZ-wide and has regularly assisted community organisations with the foresight to connect those community groups with marketing professionals, combined with clever business acumen to bring you the WoW movement. We’re building WoW into a model that can be duplicated through out New Zealand, Australia and across the globe, much like a franchise model would, but with the core purpose of helping kids. Want to sponsor an event or donate? NZ teens need our support. Just scroll down this page, or find our contact us page in the footer.

Donate NZ – Teens Need Us

Getting involved can take shape in several ways. You can make a tax deductible donation to the cause, you could offer to become a volunteer, you could offer to provide or sponsor an event, or you could offer to become a mentor. A mentor is someone that helps teens as a voice on the end of the phone to work through troubling times. Before being accepted for this role, we conduct rigorous background checks and you’re asked to provide a police certificate. An event host should ideally have specialist skills in the event you’d like to offer, and the facilities to provide. Again, a background check and police certificate in necessary. If you’d like to sponsor an event, it’s best to connect through our contact us page, or if you’d like to donate, NZ teens will be extremely appreciative; please choose from the denominations below.


Donors Help Fund Young Kiwis In their Mental Health

Make a donation to our youth programme and protect and save lives. Yes, it seems drastic to say this, but the reality is that many New Zealand families aren’t good environments for teens to grow up in. Your donation will go to helping young New Zealander’s find productive, fun, after-school activities, including youth groups, exercise and friends with good values. Mental health is a serious topic in New Zealand, and our teenagers are suffering the worst. Help ease the mental pressure by assisting us in providing communities of support, safety and friendship.


Support Christianity in New Zealand

Whether you attend church or not, our western values were built on Christian values and have helped us form our Kiwi culture. Census statistics show that these values are being lost, year after year, to other religions. Although we support diversity, the recovery of our faith is important to many Kiwis. The WoW foundation has been formed to help young people find healthy values in Christian environments, while aiming to restore a vital part of our community spirit.


Receive A Deductible Tax Receipt

New Zealanders that make a donation via a business entity, you’ll be eligible to receive a tax credit of 33%. If you’re thinking of being generous and donating to a charity, it’s most advantageous for your donations to be transferred through a business bank account and deducted. Please seek professional advice from your accountant to ensure you’re informed with accurate information. You can also read more about it on the Inland revenue website explaining tax credits for donations.
