NZ School of Social Entrepreneurs
In May 2011 Te Hana Te Ao Marama proudly became a founding member for the New Zealand School of Social Entrepreneurship (NZSSE). The NZSSE enables community driven people to generate economic and social change within their own communities. As a member of the NZSSE, Te Hana Te Ao Marama was given the opportunity to offer two individuals a scholarship worth $18,000 each. The candidates for the scholarships were those that had a ground-breaking initiative to take their community forward and were selected to attend the class of 2012.
Successful NZSSE 2012 scholarship applicants were:
Thomas de Thierry - Inter-regional Indigenous Visitor Centre project
Tahu Kena - Marae based social enterprise project
The New Zealand Centre for Social Innovation are now seeking applicants for 2013. If you have a project idea and believe you have what it takes to move your community in the right direction, the NZSSE may be the answer. APPLY NOW and get the knowledge and the skills to get your project up and running.
Gateway / ATTTO
During the July school holidays 2011 Te Hana Te Ao Marama had the pleasure of hosting an educational tourism workshop (wananga) for 44 eager students from various schools throughout Northland. During their stay students were given the opportunity to learn about the Tourism industry in an interactive, cultural and fun environment. The school program was run through Gateway as well as the Aviation, Tourism and Travel Training Organisation, otherwise known as ATTTO, which offers students hands on experience and work place based learning whilst they are still at school.
