Mr Ratima says, “I have a personal mantra that I share all the time, with and that's, my role is to change somebodies life every day, and that's just want drives it.”

Kei te mahi a whāea Evelyn i konei i Te Kohanga Reo o Whakatū hei pouako, ko te whainga, he whakatō i ngā uara pai ki nga whakatipuranga.

E hia kē nei ngā kaupapa i whakamahia e tēnei tokorua i tō rātou hapori, mai i te whakarewatanga o ngā mahere ōhanga tae noa atu ki ngā hui whakanui.
