In the Community
Duffy Books in Homes
Our community sponsorship of Books in Homes is something we have taken to the world as we have grown, we are happy to support so many schools worldwide and our relationship has been strong in New Zealand since the programme’s inception.
Books in Homes targets schools from remote or low socio-economic circumstances and provides three books of their choice to children three times a year to take home to build their own libraries.
Since the official launch in 1995, Books in Homes have supplied over 12 million books to over 500 schools and more than 100,000 students. The Books in Homes programme has inspired offshoot programmes in Australia and the USA.
We believe our time is as important as our money, so our team members are often present at the book giving assemblies and are involved in a mentoring programme which allows our team to promote and encourage the enjoyment of learning by reading the books to the students.
Life Education Trust
This year marks our eleventh year of support to The Life Education Trust.
We are proud to support these two exceptional organisations that channel so much to the children who are our future.
Our approach to sustainability
Sustainability is not a top-down directive or bureaucratic process, but is driven from the ground up, by teams that are empowered to make their own decisions.Click here for more information
