With this purchase a copy of this book will be delivered to The Taonga charitable trust who run the Taonga Teen Parent Unit and 6 ECE centres in Auckland.
They work with teen mums throughout their pregnancies with adult education and then support them with raising their babies in the ECE centres, which also look after children of the South and West Auckland communities. On a day to day basis they are not only providing quality early childhood education, they're also providing food parcels, warm clothing, blankets, house-hold items and access to ongoing support for their most vulnerable families.
