This past weekend TSK had a fundraiser to help us keep growing and provide employment and training to women with a prison past. A huge, warm thank you to the Anglican Diocese of Wellington who came out for some delicious kai (thanks @nosh_wellington ) and heartfelt speeches. Your contribution means so much and we're deeply grateful #tradeschoolkitchen

Free coffee!☕️ All you have to do is donate to @tradeschoolindustries pledgeme campaign (Link in bio to donate) . Trade School Industries are a charitable trust and social enterprise that give formerly incarcerated a chance to turn their lives around through employment and social support. This happens by training inmates at Arohata Women’s Prison, they receive 8 weeks of barista skill training. Trade School Industries have now launched a pledgeme campaign to raise money required to open a cafe. To ensure these women have employment after they are released. . You can help by pledging any amount you can, we have sponsored a few of the rewards, so for the price of a coffee, you can really make a difference to someone's future. . . . #pledgeme #eighthirtywhanau #tradeschoolindustries #brighterfutures #freecoffee

Today is a very exciting day for Trade School as we have started demo for our cafe build! The wall happened to be almost identical in colour to the prison standard t-shirts at Arohata (as seen in previous photos). The symbolism of it all meant we had to give it a go ourselves. Unfortunately Lauren wasn’t trusted with the sledgehammer but still managed to make a dent with the humble hammer. Watch this space! #jobsnotjails #tradeschoolindustries #tsi #betterfutures
This week we had Tait, Wellington’s Milk Wizard, teach the women at Arohata a thing or two about latte art. They may have schooled him on keeping his station clean... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tradeschoolindustries #tsi #betterfutures
