March 2016 Recipients
Tauranga Youth Search and Rescue (YSAR) received $1,499 to replace their current projector. The organisation recruits and prepares young people for search and rescue operations and develops their understanding of the New Zealand wilderness.
YSAR also helps students grow valuable life skills and prepares them to assist local volunteer groups with the search and rescue of lost and injured persons in the community.
The projector is an important piece of training equipment for YSAR as they use it for Wednesday night leader-to-student training sessions and to display data to monitor student’s locations during outdoor training, but it will also be available to Tauranga Search and Rescue in real life rescue situations, benefitting the whole community.
