Our team had a spectacular evening at the Sir John Graham Lecture 2019, where Professor Gobodo-Madikizela who served on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission delivered a korero reflecting on the practice of reconciliation as a response to historic injustices. She created a beautiful space for us all to engage in this conversation in the context of Aotearoa. Thank you to Maxim Institute for putting on such an inspirational and challenging event, we left feeling energised to see this outworked in our community for whanau to be restored and living well.
Congratulations to the latest graduates of our Family Restoration Course. You have begun an incredible journey of transformation. I’ve learned a lot, and it's really motivated us to keep pushing forward. There are better things in life, not getting stuck where there is always rage. It's about knowing what you did wrong in life. You have to forgive yourself and everyone that’s done you wrong, and open your heart to try. - Mother of 5 speaking at her FRC graduation.
I didn’t want to be another statistic and I didn’t want to let my kids down. I didn’t believe that anyone could help the pain or the hurt that I had been going through. This programme was my last resort, and I got the help I need to move forward. -Mother of 3 and graduate of our Family Restoration Programme
