Hamilton Raffle | Support Rangatahi Attending The Un Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues | Nyc | 2018

I am very humbled to be attending the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York, and need your help! Donate $20 be in the draw to win a prize pack with a value of over $350! Share with friends, family, and colleagues

For the first time ever, Aotearoa Youth Leadership Institute (AYLI) is sending a rōpū to the United Nation’s Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York next month. We're thrilled that our delegation of ten rangatahi will be joined by another thirteen rangatahi from The Moko Foundation, seeing the strongest rangatahi Māori presence to date.

The Permanent Forum meets for 2 weeks each year and works on issues related to socioeconomic development, culture, environment, education, health, and human rights. Specifically, its role is to provide expert advice to the UN's Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the wider United Nations on indigenous issues.

We have the task of raising over $5000 each (over $50,000 in total) to cover costs of attending. Click here for a breakdown of costs. We do not believe costs should be a barrier for young Māori to participate in such an important kaupapa. 

Not many people get these opportunities but we all take the voices of our whānau and communities with us. We span an ocean of lived, working, learned experiences - creative natives, artists, directors, activists, advocates, aunties, uncles, medics, entrepreneurs, lawyers, rangatahi facilitators, educators, tauira, whānau warriors and more. We have lots we will get to share with indigenous whānau overseas, and lots we will learn and bring back.

Attending the forum will not only affect the impact of our work by connecting us with individuals and rōpū, fuelling our fires, exposing us to inspiring strategic vision, and expanding our knowledge and skills. The diversity of our rōpū will see a production of various content come out of this experience.

 

I am open to discussing the possibility of presenting various works, sharing insights learned and experiences had, to the wider public upon returning to Kirikiriroa, Hamilton.

 

 

Thanks to local Hamilton businesses we have a basket of goodies up for grabs. ENTER TO WIN...
