Te Pāpori Whakatere is a structured capability development programme that aims to enable Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu to support invested transformation initiatives and change agents. The programme involves a series of wānanga that bring together inspiration, aspiration and skill developments, with a whānau feel. The programme is supported by a team of experienced entrepreneurs, mentors and specialists (lawyers, bankers, communications people and more) who will work with you on your initiative.
Te Pāpori Whakatere is made up of five wānanga over a 10 week period aimed at supporting the development of whānau driven initiatives (innovation ideas, organisations, and approaches) that have the ability to create far reaching social impact for whānau. Te Pāpori Whakatere supports the growth and development of initiatives through wānanga, networking and coaching.
A key outcome is to improve the sustainability of social initiatives in regards to their intended impact, and increase the pace at which this impact is achieved.
Te Pāpori Whakatere is facilitated by Tū Māia Ltd on behalf of Te Pūtahitanga. Tū Māia is represented by Sacha McMeeking, Cazna Luke and Janyne (Dottie) Morrison.
