2019 Christmas Festival at Ranui Library

With free admission and a variety of free booths which included; Nail Art, Face Painting, Calligraphy, World Vision VR Experience, Surfing Experience, Caricature, Kid’s activities zone, JP Service, Photo zone, and Christmas Tree decoration. It was a heck of an even to wrap up the year.

2019 Mental Health Workshop at Raye Freedman Arts Centre

Mental health in the Asian community is considered taboo.

We wanted to challenge that stigma by holding a mental health workshop directly for the Asian teen community. 

It was a chance to share burdens and stresses as well as a reminder that it's okay to be not okay.
This workshop was held in 2019 with the help of Waitemata District Health Board.

2019 Scented Candle

In mid-2018, the Charitable trust Lowly Heart kicked off the scented candle project with 3 residents from the caravan village. 
Half a year later, Lowly Heart moved into what once was a coffee shop in Henderson to continue the self-reliant candle program.

During this time, there were 30 participants with 2 members becoming proficient at candle making. 
Reconnect played a part by assisting in the sales and marketing aspect of the project during this time.

In January 2020 the self-reliant scented candle program was passed onto Reconnect. 
Thankfully, Lowly Heart is fervently assisting Reconnect behind the scene.

Reconnect is journeying together with the candle makers.  
All proceeds go into the scented candle project.

2018 Happy Pull Campaign
