    This month, I was delighted to celebrate Indian Independence Day with so many of our New Zealand Indian families and friends, at Radio Tarana’s event in Auckland. It was very special to have so many of my Cabinet and parliamentary colleagues, as well as major community organisations attend. Well done to everyone who made this celebration a success.

  • Supporting Active Citizenship

    The team at SPLICE

    SPLICE, an Auckland-based movement aimed at connecting communities, has recently been supported by the Ethnic Communities Development Fund to launch Active Citizens in New Zealand.

    Active Citizens is a social leadership programme developed by the British Council.  The programme aims to build skills in intercultural awareness, problem-solving and positive community engagement. The programme has connected over 50 countries, and helped launch over 7,500 community-based social action projects.

    Kia ora, namaste, ni hao, mabuhay, anyoung haseyo, mālō e lelei and very warm greetings to you all.

    I began the month by visiting many bright year 7 and 8 students at St John the Evangelist School, in Ōtara. I shared with them my migration journey; from arriving as a Tongan teenager with English as a second language, to becoming a Cabinet Minister. It was a delight to meet such a diverse group of engaged students and future leaders. Many of our students and their families have similar migration journeys in coming to settle in Aotearoa New Zealand. It was a great opportunity to acknowledge their skills, and the ambition of positive changes they wish to bring about in South Auckland.
