Te Ara Tauira

#thisonesforourmāmās

I tērā mārama, ka whakaputa te kōrero nā te pāti Act mō ngā mahi o te whānau. E ai ki tētahi, ko te mahi whakatipu tamariki, he mahi mō te whānau nāna te pūtea ki te whakatipu tamariki anake. Wāwau ana te whakaaro nei! Nā Metiria Turei – te takirua o te Pāti Kakariki – tētahi whakautu. I tāna wā, i whakaheke a Turei ki te Manatū Whakahiato Ora. Ko tēnei hei mau tonu ia i ngā pūtea hei awhi i tōna whānau, me tōna tamaiti. He ahua i kitea i te katoa o ngā whānau. He kaha te whawhai mō tātou oranga.

Titiro ki ngā kaupapa whakahaere o te kāwanatanga, ngā ture o tēnei whenua. He taniwha kei reira. He uaua te mahi ki te whakatipu tamariki i tēnei rā; mō nga māmā, ngā pāpā, ngā koroua, kuia, ngā matakēkē hoki. I kite au tētahi whakaaro pai mā runga Pukamata i tērā wiki.

“In the latest government budget we are investing five times the amount of money into building prisons than social housing. What about the baby mamas who have no one to advocate for them? And imagine if we invested in actual adequate social housing with the money we spend in motels and prisons?”

He aha ngā mea nui hei whakatipu i te whānau? Me kuhu ngā tamariki ki tētahi whare mahana, me hoko kākahu, me hoko kai. Me āwhinatia e tātou kia haere ngā tamariki ki te kura. Ko ēnei ngā kai hei ora i ngā tamariki i te tuatahi. Ki au nei, ko tētahi āhua o te Mana Wāhine kei waenganui te mahi whāngai mō ngā tamariki. Ko Metiria Turei tēnei, ā, ko tātou māmā katoa tēnei. Nā te whakatauki te kōrero: tangata ako ana i te whare, te turanga ki te marae, tau ana. Tika tērā, ā, i tēnei wiki kei te mihi ki ngā wāhine kaha ki te mahi whakatipu whānau!

In Which a Boy Leaves

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
