Kahukura Pounamu launch Recently Kahukura Pounamu Whānau Ora initiative was launched in Ōtautahi which is a Takatāpui (lgbti+) network in Te Waipounamu aimed to create safe spaces and support other Takatāpui (lgbti+) organisations. It was a wonderful gathering of mokopuna and grandparents, rangatahi. The kōrero was true to the cause of whakawhanaungatanga; of unity; of celebrating difference and valuing each other.
Taku Reo Rāhiri Twenty of our Whānau Ora Navigators have taken part in a Taku Reo Rāhiri programme taught over four noho wānanga in Christchurch, and components online with individual kaitiaki sessions. The training gives them a solid foundation and resources to ensure consciously, competent and confident Kaitiaki creating a safe environment where Whānau can flourish and where their potential. A learning outcome is to ensure Navigators are grounded in critical mātauranga, skills and attributes that will make a positive difference as kaitiaki in the Whānau Ora space. Founded on the centrality of Whānau Mana Motuhake and Mauri Ora the programme is designed to give them confidence in the space to engage with whānau, hapū, hāpori and iwi. Facilitators are Tania Rīwai and Matewawe Pouwhare from Tui Kereru in Wellington.
