This programme creates opportunities to connect , uplift and empower whānau, hapū and iwi. This is a Māori-centric trust based in Rotorua.  Because of lived experience, we understand the importance of whānau support both in prevention and postvention. The Whakataukī “ma te kotahitanga e whai kaha a tatau “ – in unity we have strength is part of our core beliefs. 

We will offer our Rangatahi Scholarships “Ride 4  Life” – a motorcycle awareness ride . And also a Community Healing Expo which will return in 2021.
