We are the Living Wage Tongans

The E.C.H.O.  project is a collaboration between the Tongan Youth Trust and the Living Wage Movement in Auckland to inspire Tongan youth to stand up; develop skills in creative expression; and build leadership and opportunity in the Tongan community.  The Trust and the Living Wage Movement share common aspirations

  • The need for a proper income for decent health, life styles and the quality support required for a good education
  • The desire for structural change in society that shifts the mindset of people about their capability, to inspire them to think anything is possible
  • The recognition that we need the capacity to act together if we are to bring about change that transforms people's lives
