The Generator, Ministry of Social Development, Vaka Tautua and Monte Cecilia provide the stepping stones that enable Ann Gafo and her children to move from despair to a future filled with safety, hope and promise.
Ann and her family moved to New Zealand four years ago. After living with family in temporary conditions and a rental property that was hazardous to their health, MSD provided the Gafo family with emergency housing until the Monte Cecilia Housing Trust re-homed them.
Throughout this journey Ann did what she knew best to help make ends meet- she sewed. In 2020 the Generator provided Ann with the resources she needed and her home sewing business, La Norah’s Sewing and Crafts, has blossomed.
