We gave them an inch and they created an Empire

  • In 2017 we started a community youth program called the Heartivists.  We won the Wellington regional Health and Wellbeing awards for that program which got us funding to work in South Auckland.
  • The kids in our Rewa Heartivists program helped us CoDesign Click Happy.
  • The Click Happy students then Co designed Create Happy Magazine with a 13 year old editor and a handful of keen writers they started and created their first magazine with support from our trust.
  • Fast forward to now and we have 6 full sized editions in our collection,  a volunteer creative team of over 60 content creators and we have won awards.
    • Girl Boss Innovation Award presented by Spark in 2023
    • The Arts and Culture Award from Wellington Community Awards for the whole region.
  • Our next step is to create a podcast.
  • We also run a thriving online community where the students support each other and cheer each other on from around the country.
