TAUWHAO TE NGARE TRUST PAPAKAINGA
Tauwhao Te Ngare Trust is an Ahu Whenua Trust that administers Maori land on Rangiwaea Island in the Tauranga Harbour. PSL assisted Tauwhao Te Ngare with its business case to the Social Housing Unit in 2011 successfully receiving a grant of approximately $1.2 million to build four Kaumatua homes and one three bedroom home. As ongoing support and at no cost to Tauwhao Te Ngare Trust, PSL was instrumental in establishing the Project Control Group which meets monthly to assist the land owners with project control and implementation. The project commenced in January 2013 and was recently formally opened in September.
This project is a testament to the commitment of Tauwaho Te Ngare Trust to their whenua and whanau - nga mihi miharo!
