According to Stats NZ, 1 in 4 Kiwis have a disability and their employment rate is only 22% compared those who are non-disabled at 70%. That’s over 250,000 capable Kiwis desperately looking for employment!
The Cookie Project is a social enterprise that employs Kiwis with disabilities to make delicious cookies right here at Eden Park.
