New Zealand Innovation Awards 2016

In October 2016, the Manaiakalani Education Programme was awarded New Zealand Innovation Awards in two categories:

  • Innovation in Education, Training & Development (Sponsored by Chartered)
  • Excellence in Social Innovation (Sponsored by Yellow)

Here is the feedback we were given:

" Congratulations and thank you to the Manaiakalani Trust for the valuable work you are doing. It is so important that every NZ child has an opportunity to learn, grow and have a positive future. Your work with Maori, Pasifika and all students giving access to digital technologies and learning opportunities is a breakthrough innovation. It is great to see such an innovative initiative focusing on some of New Zealand's most vulnerable children. You should be really proud of your achievements as you continue to build on them! Inspiring, powerful, successful. Wonderful social enterprise innovation focusing on a vital purpose and mission. Your entry caught the imagination of all our evaluators and we hope that the positive publicity resulting from your entry has assisted you by telling your story and gaining support to solving these important issues."
