How you can support us
Workshops and Services
We deliver services and workshops on Rongoā Māori for our community. We provide a safe space for wāhine to come together, learn, share kai and kōrero.
We mostly rely on volunteers and koha to facilitate our services. Many of the wāhine at Te Waka Rākau have contributed to our Charitable Trust to enable us to help other wāhine.
Our goal is to have full-time kaiawhina to work closely with wāhine who need professional assistance. Through the Punaōra Wānanga we have identified strong leaders and healers who have stepped forward to contribute their time and skill toward our kaupapa. They work closely with the wāhine supporting them in their growth, empowering their wairuatanga. Our goal is to be able to tautoko their koha with full-time paid employment.
Virtual Rongoā Clinic
Our new service is The Virtual Rongoā Clinic which provides our local community and members of Te Waka Rākau the opportunity to kōrero with a Kairongoā via our Live-streaming platform on our website. The exchange for rongoā rau prepared for customers during live event is by koha.
We value every koha donated.
