My Story

Watch the Walk With You Video. Walk With You was commissioned to reflect my personal experience of connecting with people in homelessness.

Lyrics below.
Met a brother a couple days ago
He said luck has got a lot to do with how it all turns out
Look around
He was sipping on a bottle of some alcohol
Struggling to figure out a way to go
No help, to be found

I will walk with you
No matter what you go through
I will walk with you
No matter what you go through

Met a woman yesterday
Two little girls a baby on the way
And I can see you struggling
Making something out of nothing
Weeks go by she got rent to pay
People walk by look the other way
And all of her money
Goes to feeding everybody

I will walk with you
No matter what you go through
I will walk with you
No matter what you go through

Everybody got a mountain that’s too tall
Everybody got a mountain they can’t climb
Come together we can conquer it all
You’ll see in time
Come together and we’ll be alright, we’ll be alright, we’ll be alright!

We will walk with you
No matter what you go through
We will walk with you
No matter what you go through
We will walk with you
No matter what you go through
We will walk with you
No matter what you go through

This is for the homeless man
Hoping you will understand
You can find a little friend in me
For all the little hopeful girls
Living in a hopeless world
You can do anything if you BELIEVE
Commissioned by Sarah Trotman, ONZM

Team AUT

Blob

Tika, pono, aroha; integrity, respect and compassion.

With these as our core values, AUT is proud to once again host The Lifewise Big Sleepout – to boost awareness of the awful grind of homelessness and raise money to support the work that will eliminate it from our society.
We are also proud of our staff who take part – raising sponsorship by sleeping outside on a winter’s night. No, it’s not true rough sleeping, but the experience – and spending time with people who’ve done it for real – does give genuine insight. That’s why many do it year after year – it’s compelling.
So please support your colleagues by going to their Big Sleepout pages and donating.
On behalf of our fellow Aucklanders – particularly the kids – who have nowhere to sleep, nowhere to call home ... thank you.
By the way, students from the Master of Human Rights class have made a documentary, “On Our Doorstep – a voice for homeless youth.” You can see the trailer on the AUT Facebook page.
