Te Puna Wai Papakāinga opens first home for Wainuiomata whānau

10 September is a very special date. It’s the opening date for Waiwhetu Marae, Wainuiomata Marae and now the opening of the first whanau home at Te Puna Wai, the Papakāinga Housing development on Moohan St. One of the many wonderful outcomes is that Te Puna Wai, in partnership with Friday Homes, is offering building apprenticeships. Nanaia Mahuta MP – Hauraki-Waikato awarded tool belts today to the first two apprentices. Te Puna Ora “is created and led by Taranaki Whānui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika ( Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust). It is being developed by The Wellington Company, with support from Te Puni Kōkiri and Te Tumu Kāinga).” Find out how Te Puna Wai is about “far more than just houses”  Find Out More
