A large part of the value proposition for Te Rūnanga o Toa Rangatira in deciding to establish Te Āhuru Mōwai is the opportunities that it can provide for Ngāti Toa. The development of the Te Āhuru Mōwai website is one of the first steps to accomplishing this which is why KohaTech have been engaged to develop the Te Āhuru Mōwai website.
KohaTech actively encourages and promotes Māori in IT and plan to use their unique position to identify local IT qualified Ngāti Toa whānau and provide employment, upskilling and mentoring opportunities for them in building our website system.
Manu Katene, Director of KohaTech notes that “We want to provide meaningful employment opportunities to Ngāti Toa whānau within the IT sector and are pleased that we have on board a number of our people to work on this project.”
Waipuna Grace, Communications Advisor for Te Rūnanga o Toa Rangatira and of Ngāti Toa will project lead the development of the website.
