Malachi Paku got into a trade to further his goals, as well as to help his whānau.

“My dad was very strong and passionate about getting me and my brothers into the trades.  In our family and in our community we didn't have any tradespeople so having a trade is useful for us, our whānau, and our community.  We could give back,” says Malachi, who completed a pre-trade carpentry qualification at WelTec in 2016 with financial assistance through a Māori Trades Training scholarship.
