Te Hau Ora O Kaikohe Charitable Trust
Rahiri Marae is North-East of Kaikohe in a small settlement where a number of closely related whānau reside in. This project is about these whānau working together to show leadership and ensure protective factors are enhanced and encouraged for the socially isolated, at risk tai tamariki living in the settlement.
The ReIgnite Project was a multi-pronged approach to supporting whānau and the community through pre and post-vention activities. The whānau lead an initiative to break down barriers to accessing much needed services and building confidence and trust among tai tamariki and their whānau in services that can help them with issues relating to mental health, education, sexual health, drug and alcohol and healthy lifestyles. The Marae currently runs the Tū Tama Tane, Tū Tama Wahine marae programme and builds on the whanaungatanga established through this contract.
