Oxfam

In 2016, Lautrec forged a relationship with Oxfam to work on projects that are important to us as an Organisation and in line with our vision which is to ‘apply our knowledge and skills to create a better, fairer and more sustainable planet, both individually and collectively’.

Taps Off Day

Living in New Zealand, you may take it for granted the access we have to fresh water.  Taps Off Day reminds us that not everyone is as fortunate as us and stresses the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
Lautrec were one of the sponsors for 2017 Taps Off Day.

Vanuatu WASH Project

Vanuatu WASH Project

The Directors went to Vanuatu to meet with key members of the programme to find out more about what they do and initiatives used to become self-sustaining.  We are excited to see how this project develops and how we can support other countries that are part of the WASH programme.
