He Korowai Trust

In July 2017, He Korowai Trust successfully entered the Foundation North CFC funding programme, signalling the way for the full establishment of Sweet-As Academy as a mechanism to enhance the prosperity of Māori in Northland.  Sweet-As Academy provides the opportunity for Northland’s most vulnerable youth to engage in trades training by refurbishing houses from Auckland, and relocating them on their ancestral lands to create stable and safe homes for whānau.  Sweet-As Academy will also enhance the level of prosperity within the ecosystem by strengthening current social enterprises in Northland, and building new ones.    It is anticipated that He Korowai Trust will provide a pathway for transformative change for Māori in Northland.
