Tan Phuangdokmai from Avalon (Aotearoa) Charitable Trust

Buddies are volunteers that spend time with people with a disability in order to support them to gain access to and positive experiences in the community. For example going to the gym, having a coffee, visiting the museum or even doing some volunteering together! Volunteers are matched with people based on similar interests and location. You can commit to anything from a couple of hours a month to a few hours a week.

Avalon is a charitable trust that provides services in the Bay of Plenty to support individuals with a recognised disability. A key component of Avalon’s work is to reduce barriers to inclusion in community for the people we support.

Pursue higher education with a Masters Degree

Te Whare Wananga Awanuiarang

Masters Study

Meet Hinerangi Busby who shares her journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi.

I am a graduate of the marae-centred programme, Te Pouhono, transforming Māori communities, promoting mātauranga-a-hapū, a-iwi. My participation took me to the Bachelor of Mātauranga Māori, and then postgraduate study.

Awanuiārangi centres you. This is the nurturing space of Māori researchers, with the support of academic and professional staff; this all transpires from an authentic indigenous and traditional Māori environment.

My studies have empowered me to play a more pro-active role in whānau and hapū affairs. Instead of being angry at a past that we cannot change, let’s become part of the solution for positive change.
