We all know the importance of noho marae.
The putea helps:
1. Pay the power
2. Cover all maintenance
3. Fund wananga
4. Beautify the marae complex
5. Keep our waahi tapu looking ataahua
The main ticket is that wananga allow our whanau to learn hitori, matauranga, purakau, tikanga and te reo. It allows whakawhanaungatanga to happen.
