    Mauri Ora Fund

    Whanau, you've told us rejuvenating identity and Ngāti Rāruatanga is one of your top priorities.

    As a response, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Rārua uses the Mauri Ora fund to support whānau to hold wānanga on whakapapa, reo me ōna tikanga and other activities. Our belief is that more impact will be created by whānau being empowered, than by central delivery by the Iwi.

    As an example, we funded some of the kākahu items for the Motueka Mai Tawhiti kapahaka group from the Mauri Ora Fund. They have a junior and senior rōpu.

    Interested? You can apply any time for up to $5,000 + GST.
