About Our Funding

WHAT IS AN ORA Investment Application?

ORA is an acronym for the Opportunity to Realise your Aspirations. Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu wants to support whānau to realise their aspirations through this fund.

Initiatives must demonstrate a kaupapa Māori approach, e.g. whānau centred, use of te reo Māori, incorporation of mātauranga Māori, inclusion of te ao Māori values, collaboration with other Te Putahitanga initiatives.

Initiatives must be aligned with Seven Pou, designed  to achieve specific Whanau Ora outcomes. They must support whānau to be:

  • self-managing
  • living healthy lifestyles 
  • participating fully in society
  • confidently participating in Te Ao Māori
  • economically secure
  • successfully involved in wealth creation,
  • cohesive, resilient and nurturing and responsible stewards of their living and natural environments.
