Congratulations to to the 19th cohort who recently graduated from Tāne Takitu Ake run by Korowai Aroha.
The focus of the programme is Māori men helping Māori men with high health and social needs to realise their full potential. It connects through culture and key teachings and provide the pathway for men to gain improved health and wellbeing.
Participating men are taken on a journey that is supported by the Pae Whiriwhiri, their peers in the programme, and those who have previously engaged with the programme.
Through the combination of wānanga, physical activity, peer support and holistic support Tāne Takitu Ake will encourage tāne and their whānau to improve all four aspects of their health; whānau (family health), tinana (physical health), hinengaro (mental health) and wairua (spiritual health), so that they may realise and optimise their role in their whānau and their community.
