The I’m Local Project which aims to help queer & gender diverse youth all over Aotearoa feel valued, recognised and supported by their local communities, focuses on contacting high schools, medical centres, hospitals, libraries, marae and community centres in more rural or isolated area of Aotearoa. Supplying them with free resources about gender and sexuality.

With almost daily requests for resources from organisations around the country, RainbowYOUTH saidy that they are fast running out of resources & posters.

“We’re asking Aotearoa to pitch in to help us print another 40,000 of these booklets and posters so that we make sure we can keep up with the demand!” RainbowYOUTH explains on their givalittle page.

Since the 15th of May 2016, RainbowYOUTH has been able to raise over $5,000 with over 80 backers of the project to date, however, another $5,000 is still needed before the deadline of 4th of September 2016.
