Two of our senior Pasifika students have been invited to participate in the Pacific Student Leaders’ Programme. Ataruru (Lulu) Otia and Lizzie Tiite are I-Kiribati students with an interest in health and climate change.
This programme will take place in the Cook Islands in October. You can find out more about it at https://www.flacademy.com/pslp-cook-islands. This is a fantastic opportunity for the girls to represent their I-Kiribati community in South Auckland and to develop their leadership skills.
Unfortunately, the programme costs $3950 and the girls need help to raise money to pay for it. We have started a Givealittle page (https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/send-lizzie-and-ataruru-to-pacific-leaders-prog) for them and I know it will make such a difference for them to have support from their community.
