Three key Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu programmes celebrate their tenth anniversary this year.

Aoraki Bound, the Ngāi Tahu Fund and Whai Rawa were designed to help grow and strengthen Ngāi Tahu whānau culturally and financially, and over the past ten years they have done exactly that.

Arihia Bennett, Chief Executive Officer, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, says that while each programme is unique, each one has contributed significantly to the advancement of Ngāi Tahu and Ngāi Tahu values.

“Whai Rawa helps to create a better future for Ngāi Tahu whānau through wealth creation. The Ngāi Tahu Fund ensures whānau have the ability to access resources to strengthen Ngāi Tahu cultural excellence. And Aoraki Bound helps participants to unlock their potential and reach a new level of cultural understanding,” says Arihia.

Over the next two months we will be releasing a number of stories and videos that showcase the great work of these programmes.
