Our purpose


caritas challenge

The reason for our work is for the youth of Aotearoa. We believe that young people are our future and so they are our purpose. We work daily to enhance their education, self-confidence and provide equal opportunities no matter where they from, what skin color or history they have.

In order to do so in the best way we can, we continue to upskill our staff so we can spread our spirit and charism to the young people. Find our more about our charism at About us!

Take care of our children. Take care of what they hear, take care of what they see, take care of what the feel. For how the children grow, so will be the shape of Aotearoa.
