Kiribati Te Puke community

This Sunday, Vector Group Charitable Trust will open its doors wide to the Kiribati Te Puke Community. Indeer, who is himself from Kiribati, had a look through our Te Puke multi purpose community venue today. We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with the Pacific community. Steve Fawcett, the CEO of Vector Group Charitable Trust is originally from Papua New Guinea and as a fellow Pacific Islander is keen to see the diverse ethnic representation of the Te Puke community come together as one big family.

Mauri … this is Hello and Welcome in Kiribati!

Kiribati, an island republic in the Central Pacific, comprises 33 coral atolls and isles stretching along the equator. With lagoons and white-sand beaches, many of its islands are uninhabited, offering a remote setting for fishing, diving and bird-watching. The crowded capital, South Tarawa, made up of small islets, retains remnants of WWII battles fought on its shores, and is known for folk dancing and handicrafts.
