Educators & innovators.
WoW Women of Worth Charity
Wahine. Community. Whanau.
We support, train and mentor women ‘wahine’ of all ages, diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds who ‘needing more than a helping hand.’
Our women are seriously disadvantaged, vulnerable in their circumstances - physical, emotional, mental and social. Many of our wahine are mothers and grandmothers caring for 'at risk' tamariki and whanau.
Our women are referred to us from medical practitioners, DHB's, MSD, Orangi Tamariki and government agencies, charities ie Women's Refuge, Victim Support, Birth Right, Stand Sure for Children, early childhood services and schools and self referrals.
Our support based training and mentoring is dynamic and designed specifically to adapt to the changing needs of our community.
Currently we are creating in collaboration with Super Grans and Whanau Family Trust a pilot program for ‘at risk’ young female high school students in the Lower Hutt Community .
Our work is all about collaboration, we work alongside other community based organisations supporting their work and together we achieve the best outcomes for our women, their tamariki and whanau.
We would love to hear from you if you are keen to support our work in ways of sponsorship, funding and networking. Referrals for clients to attend our training are always welcome.
