Our Rangatahi Programmes

MWDI gave us the opportunity when we were turned away from the banks. They are so supportive of women in business

as a Te Aka mentor it is so rewarding to work alongside our mentees and know that our sessions can make a difference for our mentees. We admire their courage to not sit in the rat race and get out on their own and create their best life
