This has been a long term project and commitment in supporting the growth of local Riverside community group – Panamasian’s.
Over the years (since 2020) the has included capability to run community events, growing community members capacity and capability and set up their own systems.
The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board has been an ongoing support for us to work alongside our community, in and out of lock downs.
Some of the resources in 2020 allocated for capability, were pivoted to individual whānau support through the lock downs, especially for sanitary, health and safety equipment. Despite the ongoing challenges of lockdowns, the group has managed to grow and support their community with several community events and increase their numbers.
