Oranga Tāngata

Aug. 31, 2017, 1:17 p.m.

Whakarongo ki ngā kōrero a Marihi Langford. Poverty and unemployment is a fact of life in the Far North. It is far too easy for our youth to become complacent and think that the dole is the only possible future for themselves. This can easily effect the self confidence and self belief of our youth and puts them firmly in the hands of state dependence.

Ngāti Kahu Health Services and Work and Income have come together to create Oranga Tāngata. Oranga Tāngata is a service provider aimed at preparing our tai tamariki between the ages of 18 to 24 years with skills that will prepare them for the working enviroment. Gaining confidence and self belief is the foundation for oportunity openning a world of possibilities and a more desirable future for our youth.
