TEAM LEADER – YOUTH
Riki Nofo’akifolau is a young mother of Tongan descent hailing from the villages of Ha’asini, Holopeka and Koulo, Ha’apai. She started her journey at Village Collective back in 2013, when she came on board as a Health Promoter with nothing but life experience and a Performing Arts background. By using her creativity as a tool to connect with Pacific youth, she has played a major role in designing, developing and delivering our lesson modules. Riki believes that to support young people to make informed decisions, we need to truly understand them and for them to know that we do. In the past four years, she’s enhanced her facilitation skills and gained Public Health knowledge and qualifications, but her greatest achievement is the Talanoa she’s had with young people.
