KO WAI MĀTOU | WHO WE ARE
Our KŌ Kollective kaimahi and trustees are passionate about mahi that matters. We work with partners in our community and beyond to deliver work that transforms the lives of whānau.
KŌ KOLLECTIVE TRUST
Working with talented and committed Trustees and Kaimahi, I am privileged to be the Chair of KŌ Kollective Trust. It is through the collective aspiration and action of every person that walks through our door that we - as KŌ Kollective Trust - seek to be of service and benefit to, our Ōpōtiki community.
Being asked to join KŌ Kollective is also an opportunity to reconnect and strengthen the bonds that were initiated a number of years ago by Nanny Doreen, and added to over the years, throughout my university years, and in my career. I am fortunate to be able to contribute to the legacy she left, and I will be drawing on my experience and collective appreciation for all that sparkles. Kia ora Nanny.
I am a passionate practitioner of contextual learning for our people.
As a practitioner having only worked within the rural setting alongside our predominantly Māori communities, it is about knowing our community, knowing our learner and always operating from a strengthened based position.
The vision for me is to empower people and communities in whatever capacity we can. If we all have the ability to help someone we should in whatever way we can, collectively and collaboratively this can be a powerful tool to positive communities.
Here at KŌ we also have awesome Kaimahi.
