YWAM Ships Aotearoa is motivated by the foundational belief that every individual has a purpose, is valuable and deserves access to the necessities of life: basic healthcare, shelter, clean water and education. Thousands living in the Pacific region have little or no access to these basic needs. The injustice of the situation must not be ignored. There is no doubt that we need more than a ship to change the course of healthcare in the Pacific region. We need the partnership of individuals and organizations to bring tangible hope and create lasting change.
We are excited to announce a new partnership. Trinity Lands Ltd. has come on board as a platinum supporter of YWAM Ships Aotearoa. This is a strategic partnership built on shared purpose, mission and values.
Trinity Lands was established from the merger of three foundational trusts, Lichfield Lands, Longview and Hillview Trusts. After reading the book ‘God owns my business’ by a famous American industrialist and philanthropist Le Tourneau, the founding directors dreamt that they too could establish a farming business for doing good in the community.
The original trust was founded in 1951 and land was cleared for sheep farming, since then the trusts have evolved through agricultural cycles to emerge today as Dairy farmers, Kiwifruit growers and property investors.The establishment of the founding trusts had a common theme of generosity through personal sacrifice of freely giving time, capital and providing security that at times came with huge personal cost.The Trinity purpose is driven by faith and a shared objective of never tiring of doing good in our community.
From the inception of YWAM Ships Aotearoa, we knew it would take the combined efforts of many individuals and organisations across New Zealand to to take on a project of this magnitude. YWAM Ships Aotearoa is honoured and grateful to partner with Trinity Lands. Their partnership will provide financial stability as we move forward to empower a healthy future for isolated peoples, both here in Aotearoa and in the islands of the Pacific.
