This project aims to reconnect rangatai to te taiao through mana-enhancing and  youth development practice, pūrakau, matauranga Māori, and traditional culture.  The benefits and outcomes we seek to achieve include: 

  • Rangatahi will develop a strong sense of belonging and a positive identity
  • Rangatahi will have mana taurite, access and open doors, have their voice heard and participate in power sharing.
  • Rangatahi will have a sense of contributing to society, and the ability to have their opinions heard and valued.
