    In December 2014 we were delighted that MATES (Mentoring and Education Tutoring Scheme) Programme Director Shana Malio-Satele was one of six people awarded a Vodafone World of Difference Award for 2015. These awards support community leaders working with young people who are at risk of not being engaged in learning. Shana is keeping a blog on her progress this year, which you can read here: http://foundation.vodafone.co.nz/what-we-fund/world-of-difference/shana-malio-satele/

    In March 2015 the Takanini Child and Family Centre was featured on Maori Television. It features Joseph, a father of 25 children, who has spent extensive periods of time in prison and associating with gangs, who now has sole responsibility for his four youngest children, and came to the Takanini Child and Family Centre desperate for help. Since opening in January 2014, over 700 families in the Takanini family have been helped through the services offered at the Centre.

  • Meet the Little Crayon of Love     2 April 2015

    In February 2015 we launched the “Little Crayon of Love” media campaign created by FCB advertising agency, who generously donated their time to the project as a way to reduce child abuse in NZ. The campaign launched with a mail drop of a “Little Crayon of Love” pack to 10,000 homes in South Auckland. Each pack included a crayon and a piece of paper with instructions for a fun, free activity that adults can do to build the bond with their children (the adult draws around their hand and writes something in each finger that they love about their child, while discussing what they are writing with that child). Part of the campaign is a microsite: www.littlecrayonoflove.co.nz, which gives people throughout the country tools to do other positive activities with their children.
