Ngā Kākano – Introduction to Kaupapa Maori Social Enterprise Workshops

“Nòu te rourou, Nàku te rourou – Ka ora ai tàtou”

Te Hiringa Hononga will run across two regions over a 12 week period and will include introductory workshops (Ngā Kākano), a Train the Trainer programme (Awhi Mai – Awhi Atu), and a digital accelerator programme (He Whare Kōhanga) for ventures/enterprises already operating within the community.

He aha tènei? What is it?


Who’s Ngā Kākano For?



Ngā Kākano is for individuals, groups, marae, and/or organisations who are interested and have little awareness about social enterprise. It’s also for those who are curious about social enterprise and what they might mean for your community.

How to Participate in Ngā Kākano

A series of Introduction to Social Enterprise workshops and the HineBoss programme will be held in both Tairawhiti and Taitokerau April-May 2017. To register your interest please sign up below and we’ll send you invites to our workshops.
