Our goal is to support whaanau and schools to enable better life outcomes for tamariki.
We are a charitable organisation comprising a collective of community representatives including Mana Whenua, and established in late 2015, to provide services for a cluster of schools in Papakura.
Our programme is an integration of three strands:
Education - In an increasingly digital world and through our partner initiative with Manaiakalani Education Trust, we work to ensure all students have the necessary tools for digitally enabled education. By providing students with a chromebook, internet connection and supporting teachers, giving every opportunity to engage with their studies and expand their knowledge base.
Health - Focuses on providing efficient and accessible health care for primary and secondary schools, ensuring medical attention is never far away for tamariki. In primary schools, daily school health clinics are available with nurses and whaanau workers onsite, for secondary schools, an enhanced healther service includes full-time nurses, youth workers and weekly GP hours.
Whaanau - Our co-design approach with whaanau and the community offer whaanau a hand up through current initiatives and workshops to create a safe and healthy home environment, develop digital learning on a chromebook and everyday money skills learning.
Funds raised will be used to support needy families who are purchasing a digital device for their tamariki.
