Mangakino is a small town about 85 kilometres southeast of Hamilton, New Zealand. Since 2013, Sathya Sai youth from Hamilton have been visiting the disadvantaged youth of Mangakino to support their needs. In May 2014, 12 people from two Auckland Sathya Sai Centres visited Mangakino and organised activities based on the five human values. Fourteen youth from the Mangakino Royals youth program participated with great enthusiasm. In the first session, the youth found clues and completed two game and puzzles. In the second session, they used practical construction skills and participated in a competitive race. Afterwards, one of the Mangakino youth said, “We all learned to value and respect each other. It was a great opportunity to practice the theme, ‘All Are One.’”
