Imagine a world where Pasifika people with disabilities can live the life they want, the way they want. A life without language or cultural barriers.

Le Va’s Faiva Ora Community Innovation Fund (FOCIF) supports community-based initiatives that enable Pasifika people with disabilities to enhance participation, reduce stigma and increase access to support services. 

YES Disability Resource Centre was a recipient of FOCIF We were blessed to enable the “Re:imagine Voyager Project” where young Pacific and Mäori people with disabilities are dressed and represent leadership roles in their cultural identities. 

Check out some of the images that were gifted to us below. Honoured to hold this space 🙏🏽

Our Atu-Mai team has had a very busy yet fulfilling week connecting with youth across South Auckland ☺

We visited McAuley Highschool, Papakura High School and Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate to talk about our core Pasifika values and the ways in which we can strive to live out our values every day. 

Together we learned that no one is perfect and it can be hard to always live by our values. But we can learn and practice actions that move us closer towards living by our values.

Learn more about our Pasifika values in the #IAM module at www.atumai.nz.
