Thanks for our new van!

50% of our young people participating in our programmes do not have access to private transport  or enough money to pay for public transport. Others are not safe to travel and need to be collected from home or their care givers place. Our camps and youth development programmes also need a van or two to transport participants – not to mention our sports, cultural and drama teams!!!

So thank you to those that have helped us to get another van!!!


Helping us to help others:

My name is Manu I’m 21 years of age and have been a full time employee at Challenge 2000 for a few years. My role at C2K is not only a youth worker but someone who helps out on work projects. We as a team try to raise funds for C2K by doing jobs for others, but we also give a lending hand when needed such as mowing lawns, removing rubbish or just odd jobs for people that can’t do some things for themselves. We do a large range of work from tree work to building decks and retaining walls.  I also help out at camps and do some sports and recreational activities with young people. All this is impossible without wheels – Thank you!!.



Community Works Team

Challenge’s Community Works Team are firing on all cylinders. So far in 2011 the team have built fences, mowed lawns, prepared tonnes of firewood, assembled and dismantled countless marquee’s for Wellington’s biggest summer events, moved people from point A to Z and everywhere in between, and much much more.

For many years Challenge has been running a community works team that help teach young people critical work skills. At the same time these young people earn some money and get valuable work experience for future careers. We also carry out work for you to the highest professional standard.

Do you have any work that needs to be done? Lawns mowed, hedges trimmed, trees removed, fences and retaining walls built? Does your house need a wash or perhaps you’ve wanted to paint for a while? Would a deck add value to your house?

Please contact us for a professional and competitive quote email or 477 6827. As an agency committed to social justice we are also happy to help those that are not in a financial position to pay for services.
