RECLAIM ANOTHER WOMAN

TRANSFORMING A LIFE OF CRIME INTO A LIFE OF PROMISE

Creating tino rangatiratanga through inclusion, community and opportunity.

WE ARE CREATING TINO RANGATIRATANGA

Founded in 2014 by fashion designer and entrepreneur Annah Stretton, RAW was set up to help break New Zealand’s ever-growing cycle of intergenerational offending, educational underachievement, persistent poverty and violence for a group of disadvantaged women.

Through inclusion, community and opportunity, RAW is building hope, purpose and prosperity one woman at a time. We are creating tino rangatiratanga.
