Te Kura Nui o Waipareira: Issue 1 – Whanaungatanga
Whanaungatanga // Connecting Whānau and Communities.
The theme of this journal series’ first issue is whanaungatanga, encapsulating whānau connections and Whānau Ora. Whanaungatanga speaks to the enduring relationship that Waipareira has built with the community over time, a relationship which has provided a sense of belonging to Urban Māori whānau who have historically been neglected by all levels of health, education and political sectors. Moreover, whanaungatanga speaks to the way in which Te Whānau o Waipareira Trust engages with the community, networks and collaborators where experiences are shared and which enables individuals to achieve better outcomes compared to acting in isolation.
