What current methods do Māori use to manage money? What financial products and services are likely to be effective for Māori and how might these be successfully implemented? What support can Māori organisations (including iwi) and the government provide to increase whānau financial literacy and savings?
Poverty within many Māori communities is perpetuated by low incomes, poor financial literacy and a lack of whānau role models who encourage saving. For change to occur, financial education, collaborative community efforts and radical behavioural shifts are required.
For the past 12 months Dr Jordan Te Aramoana Waiti (Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāti Maahanga, Te Rarawa) - University of Waikato, has been working on an exciting NPM scoping project - Wai-Tai, Wai-Rua: A Mātauranga Māori based Heke Ngaru Programme to Promote Mauri Ora.
The core of this project is focused around how a mātauranga Māori-based heke ngaru (surfing) programme is able to contribute to flourishing whānau.
On Thursday 25th July, the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) formally announced the next Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) funding round details. See the announcement here.
We were very pleased to see the details and had been awaiting this announcement, which is central to our plans to secure the future of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, as New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence.
NPM's 2018 Annual Report centres around our vision of Māori Leading New Zealand into the Future and providing research of excellence that will benefit all of our communities. Download a full digital copy here.
Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's 2019 Grants and Awards programme is now open, and it is positioned to share our research, build capability and expand capacity across all of NPM's research theme areas.
This is the last full round of NPM's Grants and Awards programme for our current CoRE contract with the Tertiary Education Commission ending 31 December 2020. And so please note there will not be a full call in 2020 - all grants and awards MUST be completed by 30 November 2020.
