Community Projects

October 5, 2017

There are three community projects led by ARMS in partnership with other community groups; the WISE Collective, Safari Multicultural Projects (three playgroups) are run in collaboration with the Auckland Resettled Community Coalition (ARCC), and Auckland Migrant and Refugee Training Enterprise Project (AMARTE). All three projects focus on providing a safe space for women and children to access education, training, upskilling and enterprising opportunities.
