Mō Te Awhi
Our Story

Moemoeā – Our Dream

Ka tū pakari au me tōku kiri, ki te taha o tōku iwi - I will stand proud in my own skin with my own people.

E hāngai ana tēnei whakapuakitanga ki ngā whainga matua o te kaupapa o Te Awhi Whānau.

E tiro kau ana tēnei whakapuakitanga ki te oranga katoa o te tangata, mai te tinana, te hinengaro tae noa ki tona wairua.

Ko ta Te Awhi Whānau, he hikotahi ki o ratou kiritaki, kia whai waahi ai rātou te tū mana motuhake

The use of the word skin encompasses a person’s whole being ‘te tuakiri o te tangata’. The kaupapa of Te Awhi is reflected in this statement as it’s an outcome sought for both Te Awhi and Tū Whānau.
