Latest Rangatahi Events
For rangatahi by rangatahi - at Waimeha
In May we led a Rangatahi Wellness competition to get rangatahi’s own perspectives on what they could do to promote health and well-being among their peers. Five student groups pitched their proposals, which went to the vote on Facebook. Click here to read about the competition and the winner’s fantastic idea.
We’re aiming to reduce Māori suicide rates
Māori suicide rates are nearly double those of other ethnic groups in New Zealand. Research shows that one reason might be Māori feeling disconnected from their culture. Connection to whakapapa is something Te Piki Oranga emphasises in its kaupapa Māori approach to wellness. Our Kaiwhakatuaraa Rangatahi Sheridan Duncan has a plan to involve rangatahi in a healthy competition to promote wellbeing and help bring down Māori suicide rates.
