Support us with a Loan

The construction stage for the new farm-based school will start soon.  You can become part of the project as a lender.   Our existing school and kindergarten were  financed by donations and private, interest-free loans.  Our new school will be financed the same way.  The new farm school will be unique in New Zealand and our biggest project so far.  Help create a big team of supporters and lenders to surround this project and make something special happen.  As a lender you also become a member of our supporter community –  a connection that continues even after we have repaid your loan.
