‘Nau Mai Haere Mai’ is the welcome call to locals and visitors to a fun-filled event that celebrates Te Ao Māori
Te Iwi o Matariki 2018 are being welcomed this year by Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu as a great time to acknowledge the strengths and capacities of whānau across Te Waipounamu.
In the warmth of Murihiku today, on behalf of Marg Maniapoto and Raewyn Bourne – the Executive Manager of Manaaki Ora Trust ānd Mere Kereti, we offered our collective congratulations to twenty Whanau Ora graduates.
Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu has partnered with Ahi Kaa o Ngā Pakiaka Mōrehu o te Whenua, Whānau Ora initiative.
Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu welcomes the release of the Whānau Ora Annual Summary Report 2016/17 by Te Puni Kōkiri today detailing the commissioning activities and how Whānau Ora has contributed to gains for whānau.
Hot on the heels of the latest evaluation providing evidence that Whānau Ora is being recognised as a grassroots movement that has the potential to create widespread social change, Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu is thrilled to celebrate two magnificent advances being realised in an education context.
The goals of Whānau Ora are being realised through innovative initiatives supported by Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu. The organisation is one of three national commissioning entities contracted by Government to directly invest in flexible and innovative approaches to meet the needs and aspirations of whānau.
Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu congratulates the remarkable New Zealanders who have been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday awards announced this morning.
Recently we were invited to share kai with Whānau Ora Resilience Navigator Eileen Eriha and to hear about the awesome work she is involved in with rangatahi in Seddon.
Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu welcomes additional funding in the family violence sector but urges the importance of support for whānau-centred responses.
