ANZAC Day has always been important to Challenge 2000 since we began in 1988.
As a Youth Development Agency we encourage our young people to understand the past and then challenge them to make their contribution to a better Aotearoa and world by adopting and living the values of SERVICE, SACRIFICE, LOVE, JUSTICE and PEACE.
This year we provided a Youth Leadership pilgrimage around Wellington ANZAC sites on Thursday, arranged a Youth Service in Johnsonville on Sunday and then on ANZAC day attended the Dawn Service, then RenC one of our volunteers sang in the youth Choir and Petonio laid a wreath at the 11am Service at Pukeahu.
Tomorrow will offer an ANZAC Holiday Programme for 5-11 year olds.
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou. We will remember them. By the way we live our lives today.
