Community Minded

Passionate about making a difference, Thomas Consultants embraces community involvement by supporting impactful projects and causes that reflect our values, fostering positive change locally and globally.

Explore below the causes and projects we are proud to support

Love Cambodia

This organisation, established by kiwis Mark and Janice Sommerville, build wells, schools, and infrastructure to strengthen local communities in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. They’ve developed micro-enterprise programmes, teaching, and supporting abandoned children and families. The organisation is held in high regard winning government awards for community building.

We particularly like to support their well drilling programme which provides safe water supply as up to a quarter of Cambodia’s population do not have access to a safe or reliable  water supply. They may be unreliable due to shallow wells, tainted by environmental pollution or by naturally occurring arsenic in the soil.

Safe wells transform the lives of Cambodian communities and reduce their day-to-day burden. Thomas Consultants has been sponsoring wells in Cambodia since 2011, and for the last five years have been partnered with Love Cambodia who have through the support of numerous parties have sunk 70 wells.

Vision West

Vision West is an amazing West Auckland based organisation making a difference in our city and other parts of New Zealand by providing community and emergency housing and many other social services.

Their Mission is Building Hope Together. Together with individuals, families, and communities. We are passionate about tackling poverty, homelessness, and age gaps with hope. This means we journey with people, supporting them with physical, social, spiritual, and emotional needs with the goal of achieving our vision of Transformed Lives, Healthy Communities.

Homelessness is a social need that has been felt by many. In the extreme, this has resulted in people living in cars, garages or sleeping rough.

Our community involvement extends to tangible support, as we stand with Vision West to provide vital emergency and supported housing. 

Thomas Consultants has worked on a number of emergency housing projects built by Vision West and also emergency housing projects built by Housing New Zealand (now Kāinga Ora) and managed by Vision West as social support partner.

Children & Families

Thomas Consultants proudly support CAPNZ. Operating throughout New Zealand, CAPNZ helps alleviate poverty by working with families to become debt‑free. They have many wonderful stories of families achieving and experiencing the relief and freedom from crushing personal debt.

We support their programme nationally and a local CAP programme in West Auckland.  Committed to making a difference to children, we lend our support to various programs and projects when new possibilities arise.
