BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS TO EDUCATION

DONATE

Crowd Sourced Empowerment

Help us to dismantle the barriers to education faced by people with refugee backgrounds. By establishing a weekly donation of $1 you are empowering us to provide educational assistance to people with refugee backgrounds. If a weekly donation is not your thing you can make a one off donation through our givealittle page. We are a ‘for purpose’ organisation, help us fulfil that purpose.

Our Vision | A New Zealand characterised by equitable education

Our interpretation of equitable education incorporates two key pillars. The first pillar is inclusiveness. We believe that everybody has the right to an education that incorporates and responds to their learning needs, giving them the required tools to fully participate. The second pillar is fairness. We believe that a person’s circumstance should not interfere with them reaching their academic potential.

Our Mission | To dismantle the barriers to education that are faced by people with refugee backgrounds.

To make sure that our vision comes to life we will be implementing a range of initiatives that will break down educational barriers, brick by brick. In doing so we will be helping to build a more inclusive and fair educational system. With your support we will be able to have initiatives running across the primary, secondary and tertiary educational landscape.
