The My Baby’s Village community fund provides a pool of funding to Pacific communities across Aotearoa.
We recognise our communities have many innovative solutions. The My Baby’s Village fund is about supporting and investing in our Pacific communities and family groups to lead these solutions by supporting their ideas, initiatives and projects which lead to improved health and well-being within one of the four funding priorities.
The My Baby’s Village Community Fund is made possible through sponsorship from members of the My Baby’s Village collective.
My Baby’s Village invites our Pacific communities across Aotearoa to apply for the My Baby’s Village Community Fund.

My Baby’s Village promotes the active involvement of our communities to bring about long-lasting, positive change for our Pacific infants, children, and their families.
