Waka Hourua Community Initiative: Ahipene Trust
by Kahu McClintock
The Ahipene Takuta Werahiko Whānau Trust was established in 1994 upon the death of Ahipene Takuta Werahiko for the benefit of his uri (descendants). The overall vision and purpose of Ahipene Takuta Werahiko Whānau Trust seeks to foster closer relationships among and within the whānau and wider whānau, place education and leadership development at the centre of everything it does, and create and foster closer relationships with the whenua (land). This project creates, implements and records a whānau centred suicide pre and post-vention approach based on developing and fostering resilience through establishing stronger connections with each other; to the whenua; and through leadership and skills development.
