Grantees & Alumni

A grant-maker is only as good as its grantees. Here we showcase both the grant projects and our grantees and alumni – the Borrin ‘do-ers’. These are the people who contribute to our shared vision.

He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata!
What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people!
