Te Ara a Hape – Te Ahiwaru
On Thursday I was blessed to participate in a rangatahi programme for the uri of Te Ahiwaru – Hapuu of Ihumaatao called Te Ara a Hape. This Kaupapa was designed to support rangatahi and whānau to re-engage with education and inspire their tamariki post COVID. I felt so happy for those rangatahi in the program who live at the pā and are immersed in their culture and surrounded by their Tūpuna and caring mātua. And I’m excited to see the great things they’re going to do in their lives because of that.
