'Design Skills for Kaikohe's Disadvantaged Youth: Social enterprise entrepreneurs Ana Heremaia and Felicity Brenchley wanted to do something about the high rates of truancy, drug and alcohol abuse, youth offending and  high unemployment in the Far North. With colleague Ruby Watson, they established ĀKAU – a design and architecture studio in Kaikohe where at-risk youth produce beautifully crafted, high-quality furniture items.'

Kathryn Ryan talks with Ana Heremaia and Felicity Brenchley in a 22 min interview.
