Tangata Whenua Programme

We work with indigenous communities both locally and globally. In Aotearoa New Zealand, our tangata whenua programme includes work in the areas of advocacy, development and education with several Māori communities.

E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karanga maha o te ao mārama, tēnā koutou katoa.

Koia nei te mihi whakataki ki a koutou katoa e pānui mai ki ngā mahinga maha rawa o Caritas ki Aotearoa nei. Kua tūtaki pai mātou i tēnei mahi tautoko, tēnei mahi manaaki ki runga o te wairua o te whakataukī, arā, ko te mea nui o te ao, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata!

Nō reira, whakarongo mai, tautoko mai i tēnei kaupapa ki te whakakāngia i te ngākau aroha ki roto i ngā iwi, ngā hapū, ngā whānau maha rawa o Aotearoa nei.

Mauri ora!

Our Tangata Whenua Programme includes work in the areas of advocacy, development and education with several Māori communities.

Indigenous peoples traditionally have many strengths, including community solidarity and environmental sustainability, yet face many challenges, such as over-representation in areas of marginalisation and disadvantage.
