Punavai O Le Gagana Samoa Trust

The Punavai O Le Gagana Samoa Trust is the only Early Learning Centre providing a totally Samoan immersed early childhood education experience for the Samoan community in Hastings and Flaxmere.
The centre comprises mainly of low socio-economic, new or first generation immigrants wanting better opportunities for their children and family.
It received $4,765 to purchase 15 baby car seats for the centre-operated van, which is used to transport the children to and from the centre if the family is not able to.
