Te Whangai aims to achieve systemic change. Through whangai we harness and develop the skills of those the community cannot employ in a nurturing, inclusive environment. Those being up skilled and empowered contribute to the community that supports them.
This support is whole of community through Public , private , Philanthropic and community partnerships based on the Kaupapa Maori Whare tapu wha. – Empowering people to become resilient, communities inclusive and creating opportunity for our children. We Create a connective responsive community meeting the unique needs of its own people.
Nurture the environment and give life to the people.
Environmental based whangai training platforms create environmental resources while nurturing and upskilling our people. People become a vital component in the ecosystem and its sustainability. While restoring the environment, our unemployed create opportunities for future economies and create equity of opportunities.

Through support and training those the community cannot employ to create resources for the community that supports them, we build future economies and create a reserve bench of game ready employees. Welfare and Corrections budgets are transformed into investment rather than a cost.
Public, Private and Philanthropic partnerships focus the economy on a quadruple bottom line reporting standard rather than purely financial.
We focus on our unique culture to create a global point of difference. Using Kauapapa Maori intergenerational approach and the focus on sustainability of resources, Te Whangai seeks to bridge the divide between traditional cultures and the Westminster system to enable equity.
Whangai creates an alternative option to the Westminster welfare model that generates dependency. It Counters the negative aspects of welfare and colonisation to create equity for all our people to transition safely through life, training and employment.
