Uprising Hauora Project
Our team had the opportunity to work with our amazing Christchurch rugby league community, delivering a full day of workshops to the Eastern Eagles Rugby League Club, creating talanoa on important health topics including gambling harm and mental health, while planning with the team what a successful 2024 would look like for them on and off the field.
Te Kanava Collective
Te Kanava Collective’s campaign for online gambling is raising awareness for our Pasifika community around online gambling harm.
Our surveys and national data show that online gambling is on the rise for Pasifika in New Zealand, We want to make sure our communities are protected from products that may cause harm for some, especially the most vulnerable.
Te Kanava Collective offer our Pasifika communities and others our well-grounded and experienced services. As a community we must stand strong together, like the Kanava tree, to help shelter and equip our families who have been affected by online gambling harm and other forms of gambling harm so that our Pasifika peoples can realise their potential and thrive.
