Student and International Student Support
If you are studying in the Taranaki region and are finding it difficult to feed yourself and pay for basic essentials, we may be able to assist you. Migrant Connections Taranaki understands that many students are dependent upon part-time work to survive, and we are aware that many students have lost their part-time employment over the past few months.
If you are struggling during this time, please contact us so we can help you. We are also working closely with other organisations that may be able to assist you. Contact Us Here
