Te Pae Herenga O Tamaki Launches Ngā Tini Whetū Programme


More than 350 whānau attended the launch of a programme
which will help them set their own goals and pathways in
life.

Te Pae Herenga o Tamaki – the Whānau Ora
Auckland collective – launched its Ngā Tini Whetū
programme to a whānau-filled Vodafone Events Centre on
Saturday evening, July 17 2021.

The 13-strong Te Pae
Herenga o Tamaki collectives are rolling out the Ngā Tini
Whetū programme right across Tamaki.

Whānau Ora CEO
John Tamihere told the crowd – many who will participate
in the programme – that Māori whānau are the solutions
to Māori issues.

“Every whānau has mana, every
whānau has the right to determine their own destiny,”
Tamihere said. “If we build the capability and resilience
of whānau they can take control of their lives and make the
changes they need to.”

Presenters
included:

  • Stacey Morrison, a Ngā Tini Whetū Pou
    that provided her Te Reo Māori expertise over the first
    pilot programme.
  • Leisa Nathan, another Ngā Tini
    Whetū Pou and a mokopuna of one of the Waipareira founders
    – the late Uncle Tuck Nathan
  • Natasha Kendall, a lead
    in Waipareira Data & Performance Team, and a graduate of
    Ngā Tini Whetū.
  • Ngā Tini Whetū o Tamaki Chair
    Jacqui Harema, who oversaw the 1st Ngā Tini Whetu
    programme.

For the hundreds of whānau who
attended the event, this was an opportunity to celebrate the
beginnings of their own journeys in leadership goals and
aspirations for their whānau.

Ngā Tini Whetu, is a
collaboration between government departments and the Whānau
Ora Commissioning
Agency.
