We absolutely love what we as local residents have been able to accomplish getting the OKV off the ground. The journey has been difficult & hard as we had very humble beginnings starting with just 1 donated 40ft shipping container thanks to Panuku coupled with the generosity of a local resident who offered her front lawn free of charge with power and water for us to place this shipping container on so that we could begin the journey of modifying it into what you see today for our community, The Otara Kai Village.
We have to continue chase small pockets of funds, donated assets and time from people to build this space and in order for the OKV to be sustainable it does requires funds. If you would love to support a group of hearty residents to enable this treasured village to continue it's service to our community then we would love for you to consider supporting us financially. We would also love to get the social kai store to a place where it is open monday to friday, so if you can't support financially but have the ability to source food donors behind us then we would be absolutely grateful. We are constantly on the look out for non perishable items, baby food, nappies & formula, hygiene products and meat.
If you are interested in volunteering at the OKV and becoming an official villager we would love to hear from you. Get in touch via our contact form here.
