Taiawatea is the Ngāi Tahu rangatahi fund, which aims to help shape rangatahi who are strong, vibrant champions of Ngāi Tahu culture. It also aims to empower Ngāi Tahu rangatahi to connect and express their leadership in Ngāi Tahutanga.
Rangatahi who are aged 13-25 can apply for funding to start cultural projects aimed at strengthening their Ngāi Tahutanga; and or to support their attendance at regional and national cultural events.
Ngāi Tahu registered members and Ngāi Tahu associated rōpū are eligible to apply to the Ngāi Tahu Fund for financial support towards cultural projects that aim to strengthen and promote Ngāi Tahu cultural knowledge and practices.
The key role and function of the Tahua Taunaki Akonga – Learner Support programme, is to provide funding to enable whānau to access personalised tuition to support their tamariki (children) and further their progress at school.
Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu exists to grow and develop Ngāi Tahu whānau members who are culturally able, well-connected to their Ngāi Tahu community and outstanding performers in their chosen field.
