ELPNZ | Working with Migrants and Refugees

Making a difference

Some people who don't live life by half measures. It doesn't take long to realise that Guadalupe Lagrada is one.

A wealth of experience

Unlike many new migrants, Ahmed Yusuf Ali already had experience working on a committee when he became a founding member of the Ethnic Advisory Group in 2002. This was thanks to his former role as a teacher and administrator for Ethiopia's Ministry of Culture and Sports.

Sharing life's special moments

Husband and wife volunteers, Bronwyn Barnard and David Nicholson have shared special times with their learners.

A partnership of diversity

Luke Puamau believes 'a man who lives for himself is a failure,[while] a man who lives for the other has achieved true success'.
