Auckland Migrant and Refugee Training Enterprise Project

 AMARTE Project (Auckland Migrant and refugee Training Enterprise) is joint initiative led by ARMS and New Zealand Ethnic Women Trust, funded by Sky City Community Trust and supported By Puketapapa Local Board.

It aims to provide women from a refugee/migrant background, with tailored training in hospitality, in order for them to either gain employment within the industry or acquire fundamentals to start their own entrepreneurial initiatives; either way becoming part of the productive cycle of our community and gaining ability to support their families. 

From October 2015 AMARTE started a pilot training programme operated from the Roskill Youth Zone and Wesley Community Centre focused in areas such as:

  • English,
  • Coffee industry ( including coffee preparation and Café operations
  • Baking
  • Catering activities
  • Regulations for the industry (food Control Plan) competency sessions.

The programme has been benefiting mainly women from the areas of Mt Roskill, Sandringham, Lynnfield and Mt Albert while becoming a well-known and respected initiative among our local community.
