"Over the past couple of years, we have benefited greatly from Awarua Trust in a number of our projects. We had a large project in our Ezekiel Trust Community Kindergarten in upgrading our playground. We were able to gain funding from Awarua Trust dollar for dollar. Without this significant help we wouldn't be able to supply this new and creative play environment for the many children on our kindergarten roll. Another project we have received help with is our 24-7 youth worker at the Morrinsville College. We have 2 youth workers at the college that focus on the at risk youth -

developing relationships with them and connecting them to many other programs and help with within the community. We are very grateful to Awarua Trust for their support of our work in the community."
