New Zealand's foreign aid programme is channelled both through agencies like the United Nations and also bilaterally between New Zealand and recipient countries. It ranges from the provision of planes for spreading insecticide in Bangladesh, to a Corso scheme in Suva where young women from outlying Fijian islands are taught effective uses of their people's limited resources. Appearing in the film are Sir Edmund Hillary, economist Professor Rowe and other New Zealanders, and also representatives from under-developed countries. The film examines New Zealand's aid - what do we give and why?
