REAP students

REAP (Rural Education Activities Programme) was set up in 1979 to provide supplementary education to rural people, from preschoolers to adults. There are 13 REAP areas in New Zealand. These women are taking part in a weekend course at Castlepoint, in the Wairarapa, in September 2007.
