A group of University of Otago students is putting together a collection of ''stories'' to illustrate the difficulties faced by children living in poverty.
Choose Kids co-chairwoman Briar Hunter said they were producing a video and poster campaign to highlight how low-paid workers struggled to provide for their children.
She said they were interested in the ''missed opportunities'' that some children had experienced and how they felt that had affected them.
Parents were also encouraged to share their experiences of raising children on a tight budget. She said they had picked up on the Living Wage campaign and also a recent report from the Children's Commissioner into child poverty.
People could tell their stories to camera or write them down to be narrated. The stories would be used in videos and in posters as part of the drive for businesses to adopt the living wage as the minimum for their employees.
