We are excited to announce that SAPN has won a $1,000.00 grant from Grace Gives!
Grace Gives is an initiative from Grace Removals, who generously support community organisations throughout New Zealand who:
- Focus on communities which are excluded or disadvantaged
- Create relationships and environments where people are empowered to help themselves & each other
- Actively involve people and communities
- Build inclusiveness
- Involve approaches that are likely to bring about solutions to complex problems
We are incredibly grateful to everyone who voted for us to receive this grant, which will we use for professional development contributing to the advancement of our staffs cultural knowledge, allowing us to build skills for cross-cultural work that serves Māori in a positive way; ultimately deepening the organisations understanding of the relationship between colonisation and sexual violence. We would like to work towards using Māori models and approaches in our work but first need to develop the understandings and skills within our team to facilitate these with integrity.
Congratulations to all the other organisations who received this funding, and thank you, Grace Gives!
