Developing Men of Valour Tour 2019 (DMOV19)

$600 donated
Given by 11 generous donors in around 8 months

DMOV19 - Fundraising for our students to travel to Italy this year on our Developing Men of Valour Tour 2019.

  Hawke's Bay

We have an exciting opportunity to take our students to travel to pay homage to their ancestors, to the Men of Valour buried at Cassino in Italy this year on our Developing Men of Valour Tour.

The tour is a platform for change that is aimed at supporting our students to be life ready, career ready and aspire to a positive future

Throughout this year and on the DMOV19 Tour our young people will identify role models, develop their mental wellness, physical wellness, academic pathways, character and work ethic.

To be able to travel overseas and connect globally is a highlight, but this trip is about much more. It’s about our students aspiring to a positive future and DARING TO DREAM...Big

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini.

My strength is not mine alone, but that of the collective.

A massive THANK YOU to each and every person, whānau and community that supported us this year to provide a platform for change for our Developing Men of Valour 2019.

For helping our boys to dare to dream big, work towards their goals and know that anything is possible.

Whānau, we made it and we couldn’t have done it without you!

DMOV19: 14 days, 5 long haul flights, 3 Countries (Korea, Germany, Italy), and making memories that will last a lifetime.

Special mention to our friend and travel agent, Jo Santamaria from Escorted Tours and Pilgrimages we appreciate you so much and know without a doubt this trip would not have gone ahead without your support.

We also want to acknowledge and send a huge mihi to our sponsors. Thank you for your aroha and ability to believe in a kaupapa that is greater than all of us!
