Stop NZ Child Poverty

PROVIDE ADEQUATE WARM DRY AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND NEWLY MARRIED COUPLES
Set up large trade training facilities around country
Introduce work for dole
Use trainees to build houses in modules using maximum of NZ produced materials
Sell houses to families for 4 times annual income mortgaged through Kiwisaver

Why is this important?

BECAUSE THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN LIVING BELOW THE NZ POVERTY LINE KEEPS INCREASING
Poor and overcrowded housing a major contributor to poverty
305,000 Kiwi kids in poverty Children are a country's future
80,000 young adults with no job no training no future
Govt has borrowed over $60 billion since 2007 with little positive result
Debt must be repaid by our children and grandchildren
Christchurch wrecked Needs thousands of tradespeople $40 to $50 billion going into rebuild
Auckland's building boom also needs many tradespeople
Elephant in room is lack of home ownership
THE PLAN
Building houses trains tradespeople
Houses improve children's health Increases learning potential Saves health system money
House ownership gives families appreciating asset which can get next generation into homes Improves social stability and community pride
Training upskills workforce Provides higher incomes Families more independent
Less reliant on welfare
