New Zealand and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) have today announced a partnership to increase the social and emotional wellbeing of vulnerable children, youth and their families in the Pacific and Southeast Asia region.
Learn more about the partnership through this press release, and a video from our Programme Director, Quenelda Clegg.
