A place to call home - at school!

Given by 2 generous donors in around 5 months

Our Embassies are spaces whare students can be safe, be noticed and be themselves - we help make High School a great place to come to!


After 11 years building our reputation in the community one of our partner schools has given us the exclusive use of a room where our group can meet. This is a privilege and proof that the school leadership have faith in our work.

Our 'Embassy' is a hub for all our in-school activities, where we do our training and host visiting speakers.

We want the place to look friendly, vibrant and welcoming. Right now funds are tight so we need your help to pay for the materials, furniture and fittings to do that.

Thank you so much for helping us transform the lives of our brilliant South Auckland youth!

About us

Your gifts will be used to buy what we need to make this a great space for our young leaders.

Up and running!  28 October 2020

Thank you for all the support so far! Our new Embassy building at Papakura High School has now been officially opened by Phil Goff, Mayor of Auckland and we are very grateful to have made it this far. This room will be a haven and an encouragement to generations of our young people. Could you please continue to help us as we are now fundraising for a sink to be plumbed into the room so we can wash our hands and dishes!
