The Kia Whiti Tonu (to shine brightly) programme were a series of free online workshops provide information and insights to support capability and capacity building in community organisations. Funded by Foundation North, they were developed initially in response to needs identified in 2020 in a COVID-19 impact survey carried out in collaboration between the Centre for Social Impact, Hui E! Community Aotearoa, Philanthropy New Zealand, and Volunteering New Zealand.
Many collaborations fail because they are idealistic about wanting to belong to something perfect, instead of something that is learning and growing. This workshop provides tools and skills to help those leading or participating in collaborations to make their collaborations successful.
