The World Vision 40 Hour famine is an yearly fundraising event where students take a stand through a 40 Hour Challenge to raise money and bring hope to thousands of children living in poverty in more than 40 countries.

The College has a long standing history of supporting the World Vision 40 Hour Famine. Students not only raise funds but also an awareness of the impact of poverty on the lives of young people.

The 40 Hour Famine challenges students to go without something they rely on for a continuous duration of 40 hours. Whether that’s food, transportation or even their mobile phone. Students develop a sense of the needs others have in less fortunate circumstances. 

In 2021 Rangitoto College students raised over a whopping $15000 to go towards providing much needed support for vulnerable children living through hardship.

Participation in this counts towards your service for the Rangitoto Summit Diploma.
