You might also have seen on the news a few weeks ago where a refugee man had set up a garden centre which was trashed by vandals, but then the community donated plants and money to get it running again. That is at Common Unity also at The Remakery where community enterprise is thriving with textiles, groceries, beehives, carpentry, bicycle workshop, café and library. It is our privilege to be involved in such an amazing community venture making a difference in the lives of the Epuni community.
The Digital Wings programme enables the distribution of electronic equipment from corporate donors to community organisations to enhance educational and employment opportunities. Charities, whānau / hapū and community organisations are invited to apply for refurbished computers to support their goals and outcomes, free of charge.
Preference is given to organisations working in rangatahi, youth development and education to employment initiatives. Please note that supply is dependent upon donation stock available and allocation to community is at the discretion of the Digital Wings Trustees. Please also note Digital Wings does not supply computers to individuals or private homes.

LIFT delivers youth employment, the vision being 100% youth employment for the Hawke's Bay region. LIFT provides work-readiness, resources, tools, training, work experience and pastoral support. Activities and services are also provided to employers in our region, creating wrap-around pastoral care and pathways to transition young people into employment.
TYMS aims to deliver catalytic change in the Auckland community that makes a real difference in the lives of our Pasifika and Māori youth and their families. TYMS has grown rapidly, from working with six young people in 2010 to 135 in 2014. This growth represents two things. First, there is a profound need in our community for the services we provide. Second, we are delivering catalytic outcomes for our community, which is creating demand.

“Our vision is to promote the use of digital technologies in the Tairāwhiti district, aimed at reducing the digital divide, particularly by providing courses at Computer Hubs within walking distance of those in areas of high social deprivation, such as Kaiti.
We provide a full range of community legal services to the Porirua and Kāpiti communities. We also provide limited legal representation for people facing criminal prosecutions, where legal aid is not available because of the nature of the offence. This service is dependant on available resources.
Interesting how foundations laid decades ago can cross paths again. In 1988 Di Daniels was a Founder Member of the Kapiti Women's Centre and now Digital Wings is supporting their digital capacity with donor computers for office use and also Kapiti Women's Refuge for women to access employment services online. It is important for children in transience to have access to a computer and internet to keep up with school work, so the computers have multiple purposes.
Clown Doctors use laughter as an aid in various circumstances. They encourage and motivate, give psychological support and complement the therapy of the sick or suffering in hospitals and relief centers. The funny chaos created by Clown Doctors brings smiles not only to the faces of the patients and their family members, but also to hospital staff and visitors.
HISTORIC Tolaga Bay Inn is now being run on a not-for-profit basis in an effort to ensure the building is preserved and restored for the benefit of future generations. Escalating overheads had threatened the viability of a planned $1.5 million project to restore the inn but a move to establish a charitable trust will now place the inn under the guidance of trustees who hope to preserve it.
