Ahi Kā

Ahi Kā – the fires that burn

As a caregiver, you are doing one of the most important jobs in our society: caring for our tamariki and rangatahi, our future. Ahi Kā is a programme that acknowledges the great work you are already doing and hopes to share knowledge and skills so that you have more tools in your kete.

Ahi Kā – the fires that burn is the name of our programme because we recognise that this path has been set before us, by our ancestors. Caring for our tamariki and rangatahi is continuing our whakapapa as we support them into the future.

The moemoeā, the vision, for our programme is: he tupu aroha, to grow the love that you have for the tamariki and rangatahi in your care. He tupu aroha is achieved by:

  • Providing knowledge of trauma and the impact that this has on the brain.
  • To gain an understanding of the behaviours that can result from trauma.
  • Connecting you to other caregivers, to support  you as you continue on your haerenga, your journey.

Our courses are run kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) and online, to enhance your learning and connection to one another. These spaces are safe, a place for you to share and learn from one another.
