We aim to help new migrant and refugee children and families settle down in New Zealand as they face a lot of barriers - namely language, cultural and environmental. We will be further providing educational programs, health and safety and parenting workshops to help families settle into New Zealand society.

In our community we also have several children who have been living out of their homeland for a very long time and have lost knowledge of their mother tongue. This has resulted in a communication gap within our own community and they are unable to communicate with each other. To close this gap, we run a language school for children to regain their mother tongue.

This will help to bridge the community together and minimize the gap between new families settling into New Zealand and families that have been here a while. We also want to provide a path for integration between the two cultures.

It's a family education whanau. Our program focuses from early childhood to adult education.
We have:

Play Group 0 - 6 years
Bridging School   8 - 15 years
Youth Group Teenagers
Parents Group Adults
