Edith, our youth empowerment coordinator works with local young people in collaboration with Ranui 135 to create projects that meet their needs. She also provides mentoring and has frequently helped young people achieve their dreams by helping them find opportunities within their own community.
Here are a few pictures of some of our young people painting the youth space at the Ranui Library. The young people involved have painted a few other murals in Ranui such as the toilet block at the Ranui Train station and the Pooks Road shop. This is an ongoing project with Kakano Youth Arts Trust based at Corban Estate and artist Ross Lieuw.
