Taiohi Whai Oranga - our youth project offers a range of youth health and youth development services to Manurewa Taiohi.
Taiohi Whai Oranga is a unique service model targeting long-term wellbeing and development outcomes for youth in Manurewa. Our vision is to be a leader in the delivery of community led and youth-led services that are effective in supporting Māori young people to achieve a level of success that collectively acts as the catalyst for achieving wider social change in our community.
Taiohi Whai Oranga works in a strengths-based way - alongside Mana Whenua (original people of the land whose ancestors descend from Manurewa) and community leaders. This means that we are reclaiming the meaning and value of a Kaupapa Māori approach (created by Māori to address Māori values and aspirations) as we firmly believe this will prove the most effective method of enabling Māori young people to flourish.
TAIOHI - youth, young people, adolescence
WHAI - follow, seek, pursue
ORANGA - life, wellbeing, health
