ABOUT REAP

Central Plateau REAP is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers a variety of personalised education and whānau focused programmes and services throughout the Central Plateau region.

Our programmes cover a wide range of kaupapa including early childhood, schooling, learning support, rangatahi mentoring, adult literacy and numeracy, and community education. We operate our own ISP (Internet Service Provider) to support connectivity in remote areas.

The aim of REAP is to advance community development through quality lifelong education in rural Aotearoa. As one of 13 REAPs nationwide, our purpose is to redress the disadvantages experienced by rural communities in accessing the range and depth of activities and services enjoyed by those who live in urban areas.

E mihi kau ana ki a koutou katoa!

We are pleased to announce that we have relaunched Central Plateau REAP as a Charitable Trust, after 40 years as an Incorporated Society. The new legal structure will ensure that REAP remains fit-for-purpose for the next 40 years of service to our communities of the Central Plateau.

Our services and programmes remain the same, as does our dedication and commitment to our mission: “To facilitate lifelong learning and community wellbeing.”

Our vision of “Confident, skilled and connected communities across the Central Plateau” is our driver – Tū Maia, Tūhono!

I want to extend my heartfelt admiration to our dedicated team of educators, mentors, coordinators, support staff and managers at REAP whose tireless efforts exemplify the true spirit of community development. Their passion for serving others is both commendable and inspirational, and a testament to the power of collective action. Thank you for your invaluable contributions and unwavering commitment to creating positive change in our community.

Central Plateau REAP is an extraordinary place to work. Serving communities and people, in good times and in times of trial, is an honourable legacy that we are privileged to continue.

Nō reira, kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui.
