Established in 1986 as Project Waitangi, we are an independent, voluntary, community education group. We:
- Use experienced Pakeha facilitators.
- Involve people in activity-based learning techniques.
- Work with participants to create a safe environment to enable full and free discussion on the issues raised in the workshop.
- Provide independent resource material and a guide to further study.
