A child's potential is a terrible thing to waste.
Child Poverty Action Group is an independent charity working to eliminate child poverty in New Zealand. CPAG works on behalf of the 230,000 New Zealand children whose well-being and future is compromised by their meagre standard of living.
This report challenges common myths about beneficiaries, particularly sole parents on the DPB. These myths circulate every day in political speeches, newspapers and on talk-back radio. They mold public attitudes but do not give an accurate picture at all.
