About Cheekee Hero Charity
Kia ora koutou! Nga mihi maioha ki to mātou kōrero.
Cheekee Hero is a whānau-run charity. We celebrate, support and raise awareness of tamariki (children), rangatahi (youth) and their whānau (families) with different abilities. Our tagline CONNECT - AMPLIFY - CREATE CHANGE is our mission. We will connect families with different abilities; amplify children’s superpowers and create change by working collaboratively with charities and organisations, individuals and their families with neurodiversity, disability or illness to empower and champion each other.
We’re on a mission to change the narrative by creating our uniquely, entertaining and empathetic digital storybook series told through an indigenous lens, to inspire, heal others and pave the way for creatives of different abilities to share their experiences with each other and educate society.
Cheekee Hero Charity is the creation of Jasmine Soa, Māmā, Change-Maker advodate and Managing Director. The family’s lived experience of navigating through life with a child in treatment is the inspiration behind the need for helping whānau with similar experiences of tamariki and rangatahi with neurodiversity, disability and illness and to represent unheard voices to inspire change.
This is their story.
