“Grandmother Martha Arioka has always cared for others. She gave up nursing when her sight began to fail her several years ago, but is now retraining as a social worker. Martha is also mentoring others with visual impairment at Fale Kotuku, a drop in centre run by the New Zealand Foundation of the Blind.
Leaving school is a big deal for anyone. The young adults at Sommerville School tell Curtis about the British programme they have adopted to make that step a little less daunting.
Blind beekeeper Bryce Hooten has finely tuned his other senses to care for his bees and build a successful business. He proved his detractors wrong and his Matamata company now exports honey all over the world.
We meet athlete Tom Scott. A spinal injury eleven years ago hasn't slowed this action man down. He's competed in the New York Marathon twice - once in a wheelchair, once on a hand cycle. When he's not out on his bike he's putting in the mental miles studying to become an architectural draughtsperson." TVNZ;; 19/10/2007
