We were very fortunate to have secured another $50k from The Vodafone Foundation for 2019. This opportunity blew us away, it meant that we could further deepen the work we completed in 2018 and create more opportunities for our young people. The above ideas have been funded to be achieved from March 2019 – August 2019.
The Vodafone Foundation grant became the catalyst of other groups to match fund or match resources our projects:
- The Support Group is run in collaboration with The HEART Movement, who funds the facilitator of the sessions.
- The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board is supporting the Wellbeing Programmes in our community to grow, creating more opportunities for local community members and practitioners to understand the importance of mental health wellbeing.
- CAYAD has funded Flipping East to collaborate with us on the development of the Wellbeing Index, enabling more of the team to come together and work closely to achieve this highly anticipated initiative.
- The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board is also funding Flipping East to run Place making in Mt Wellington, and Panuku has joined in the Placemaking with funds to run some Panmure initiatives as well.
Community of Practice & Learning
The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board have supported our collective to develop a community of practice in our community of Tāmaki. We are working to bring together all of the youth organisations that are connected to Tāmaki, to gather on a regular basis, share their knowledge and expertise with each other and develop a more effective practice that will work to raise youth wellbeing holistically.
If you’re interested in joining us, we meet on a monthly basis, every 2nd Monday night at the Peace Experiment, Cnr Clifton Court and Pilkington Rd, Panmure. From 6.30pm to 8.30pm. We would love to have you join us. To find out more, contact Rosita via email – email@example.com.
