Meet Ellen (L) and Mary (R) - part of Masterton Neighbourhood Support's Weconnect programme.

Ellen, who is originally from the Netherlands, meets with Mary for an hour every week at the bakery where she works to catch up and discuss how she's adjusting to life here in New Zealand. … View more
Meet Ellen (L) and Mary (R) - part of Masterton Neighbourhood Support's Weconnect programme.

Ellen, who is originally from the Netherlands, meets with Mary for an hour every week at the bakery where she works to catch up and discuss how she's adjusting to life here in New Zealand. It's also a great chance to work on conversational skills including picking up Kiwi phrases from Mary who also volunteers as an English tutor running free lessons for Weconnect participants in Masterton.

Ellen happens to have a second Weconnect buddy, Rose, who is based in Martinborough - where they both live. Rose had moved to the area following the Christchurch quakes so is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to natural disaster preparedness, something Ellen isn't used to thinking about.

By working with a local buddy, Weconnect supports residents from culturally diverse backgrounds to feel safe, resilient and connected in their new community. If you live in the Wairarapa region and would love to help participants get settled in and make local connections, please email Cathy Cameron: cathy@connectingcommunities.org.nz
