Tangata Atumotu Trust Update: October 2018

Wednesday, October 31, 2018   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, Community Groups, pacific health, services

Fa'afetai, Thank you... Over the last month, we have had plenty to celebrate. Namely, the success of our Kindness video, which thanks to you and our community, reached over 35,000 people on Facebook. We have been so thrilled by the positive response to this video. It is our hope that this video encourages our people to speak up on mental health and wellbeing, helping us create an even stronger community.

We are now eager to build on this momentum and expand our reach in the community. If you know anyone who might benefit from any one of our services, please do get in touch.

We've also added a News section to our website, so here you'll find neat stories on our staff, board members and community. We know there are countless stories of leadership, inspiration and determination out there in the community and we want to share them far and wide! We're always keen to hear from any one who has a story they believe is worth sharing.

Thanks for reading and we look forward to hearing from you,

The team at Tangata Atumotu Trust.

If you haven't seen our Kindness video, here it is! Feel free to share it on your social media channels.

Mission to keep the spirit of Pacifika alive

Introducing board member, Ali'imuamua Asiasiga (Sia) Batcheler.

Sia has been teaching at Hillmorton High School for the last three years but is now taking a break from her Social Science, ESOL and Samoan language classes, to write the year 11 Samoan language curriculum, and translate the English version into Samoan, for Kiwi students of Te Kura - an online learning platform.

Despite the break, Sia returns to Hillmorton High School to teach four periods a week, to continue to support her senior students. “I didn’t want my students to lose their language while I was gone,” says Sia.

Tead Sia's full story and to hear why she is passionate about keeping the Samoan language alive.

Spreading the good word of TAT

Our community mobile nurses, Suli Tuitaupe and Lisa Suapopo, are a force to be reckoned with. The dynamic duo have been networking with health agencies across the city, sharing our message. With their enthusiasm and passion, our clients are in incredible hands.

As Lisa says, it is important for our Pasifika people to know there is support out there for them.

Pacifika psychiatrist striving for better health outcomes

Psychiatrist Dr Jamie Ioane, based in Lower Hutt, worked on and off for TAT for a number of years. He is now urging other aspiring Pacifika medicine students to follow suit.
