Whanau Ora right for US
Social service provider Waipareira Trust is about to partner with a native Americian group and Microsoft to take Whanau Ora tools to the US.
Stephen Keung who is the director of Whanau Tahi navigational tool developed by Waipareira says the navigator makes social services work in the interests of whanau rather than funders.
The tool is ideal for the US where there are major silos betwee state and federal agencies.
Waipareira has established relationships with key groups in the United States.
They are about to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with an urban Native American group and partner with Microsoft who they are hopeful will help Waipareira take the tool throughout the US.
Stephen Keung says native Americans are a key target market and a group of four tribes based in Los Angeles has seen that Waipareira has six years experience in this area of providing services and are keen to work with them.
