Creating sustainable, resilient communities is a learning journey.
Whether we are programme participants, programme developers or working in other ways in organisations and communities, we are all learning.
The fruits of our work at Toimata Foundation come from developing action-based learning programmes, and working in an action-based learning way with partners - learning together, taking action and sharing our stories, to continuously reflect and keep moving.
Toimata Foundation has four strategic priorities:
- A growing and diverse nationwide partner network of organisations, contributing long–term funding, collaborative programme development and regional implementation.
- Diverse programme participation in both in the reo Māori and English language settings, and high retention rates.
- Social and cultural changes taking place that support the systemic long-term change needed for a sustainable future.
- A widening range of environmental actions and practices being undertaken, from a diverse range of perspectives.
Some of the outcomes from each priority area are listed below.
