Our vision is more Successful Pacific Peoples. 

We want to make sure the journey of a Pacific child born today in New Zealand is a happy and successful one. We're working with partner agencies across the public sector to make sure every child thrives.

About Us

We are here to ensure the success of our Pacific young people flowing through the pipeline from early childhood education (ECE), to schooling, tertiary education and finally the workforce, entrepreneurship and their own families.
