Community Funding

Abby is an enthusiastic young woman who cares deeply for people and the environment.  Having volunteered with English Language Partners Waikato, Red Cross Refugee Programme, Kaivolution, GoEco, Camp Quality and the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society, she has seen first-hand the importance of community and making meaningful connections. Volunteering for Seed Waikato is exciting, enabling a vibrant region filled with connected young people fulfilling their potential.

Currently studying Law at the University of Waikato, one day Abby hopes to use her degree in alignment with her passion for environmental sustainability. Abby uses her communication and skills to help secure funding and grants to help facilitate Seed Waikato’s vision.
