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.
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.
Our natural environment – whenua, waters, coasts, oceans, flora and fauna and how we engage with it, is crucial to Ngāi Tahu identity, our sense of unique culture and our on-going ability to keep our tikanga and mahinga kai practices alive.
Once a year legal entities with a Ngāi Tahu association can apply for funding towards projects designed to meet specific mahinga kai enhancement objectives.
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.
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.

What if we used technology and the power of Moore’s Law, which holds that the efficiency of technology doubles every 18 months while the cost halves?
