Wright Family alongside Warriors Community Foundation

Supporting creative writing, reading and wāhine toa

Wright Family Foundation supports creative writing, reading and wāhine toa alongside Warriors Community Foundation.

Wright Family Foundation has begun a long-term partnership with the Warriors Community Foundation. The focus will be the creative writing programme League in Libraries-Rīki i ngā Whare Pukapuka which focuses on improving literacy achievement in tamariki and Tupu Māia which aims to increase confidence, participation and enjoyment of mental and physical wellbeing for young wāhine in year seven and eight (intermediate) .

CEO for the Warriors Community Foundation, Lincoln Jefferson was excited by the partnership.

“We are thrilled to be delivering our mahi alongside the Wright Family Foundation. Improving the wellbeing of all New Zealanders and their communities through education is a shared kaupapa with both organisations.

This multiyear partnership will grow both our programmes and ultimately better the lives of tamariki and rangatahi.”

Founder and CE of the Wright Family Foundation, Chloe Wright is also delighted by the partnership.

“Our passion for literacy stems from the sure knowledge that reading excites the imagination, opens worlds yet unseen, motivates curiosity about others past, present, and through science fiction, to imagine worlds yet unknown. To understand our past, is to create our future”.

The Warriors Community Foundation tackles social issues with programmes and community initiatives that support mental health, anti-bullying, literacy and other wellbeing skills that support success for our tamariki, rangatahi and whānau.

The Wright Family Foundation  is driven to recognise the uniqueness of the individual, to support our tamariki and rangatahi in reaching their potential through understanding and embracing their own unique individual talents.
