Hello Sally

I had a look at the WISE website and it does not seem to be what I was looking for. I was looking for somebody with sustainable design and architectural design training. This is what WISE does:

To benefit the Waitara community in general through the provision, promotion and facilitation of a range of training and work opportunities to assist those without work gain employment.

In order to achieve this, they have trainied unemployed people on how to install insulation (in Taranaki). They have also done Healthy Homes surveys in conjunction with Wellington School of Medicine.

Nevertheless, they have also provided flax for weavers and wood and chainsaws for carvers.

The focus of WISE seems to be on employement, not on the environment or on healthy homes.

Thanks anyway
