Today’s good deed: prioritising self-care and well-being. 🙏🏾

As an organisation whose purpose is to unleash our Pasifika communities' full potential, we often talk about the importance of taking care of our own well-being. Today our Le Va team decided it was time to practise what we preach. 😁

So we momentarily disconnected from work this morning to reconnect with each other as a team and nature itself at the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple. 🙌🏾

It was a beautiful morning experiencing the serene temple and beautiful landscapes. We can’t thank our leaders enough for giving us the opportunity to reconnect with the people and things we love that make us happy! 🥰

Fa’afetai!
