Recognition for our community work
Multicultural Tauranga has received a number of awards on a local and national scale, e.g. by the New Zealand Federation of Multicultural Councils (Multicultural New Zealand) and the Human Rights Commission, for the organisation's valuable contribution to migrant/ethnic communities of Tauranga and the commitment shown by its volunteers.
Individuals of Multicultural Tauranga were also honoured for their community engagement. Run by Tauranga City and Western Bay Councils in association with the Migrant Support Network, the Recognition for Services to Migrants Award highlights volunteers who help migrants settle in their chosen new home. In 2015 and 2016 Ewa Fenn and Ann Kerewaro, respectively, were recognised for their work. A joint award by the Volunteer Centre and Eves Realty saw Ann Kerewaro become Trustee of the Year 2015.
