Te Tumu Kāinga has been involved in other infrastructure development opportunities that support building the capability of Māori in areas such as education and health.

Over the past 12 months, we’ve provided grants to two projects that support wāhine Māori to continue their studies and access affordable accommodation in Tamaki Makaurau.

Wikitoria Hostel

Te Kura O Kuini Wikitoria was officially opened in May 1903, but closed in 2001. A school for wāhine Māori students it reopened again in June 2021 following an extension upgrade to the hostel facilities.

The hostel will support Māori and Pasifika students the chance to succeed in their studies by offering affordable accommodation in Tamaki Makaurau, and will be supported with whakawhanaungatanga wrap around services.

The building underwent a complete upgrade and provides 31 accommodation rooms.

United Māori Mission – Tiroroa Residence

Te Tumu Kāinga worked with the United Māori Mission to contribute funding to restore the Tirora Residence in a project that was completed in October 2020.

Tiroroa Residence encourages Māori women to participate and thrive in tertiary and trades training but providing affordable independent living opportunities in central Tamaki Makaurau.

The restoration involved strengthening the building and upgrading all of the facilities to provide a modern welcoming environment for the students. With support from Te Tumu Kāinga, they were also able to create an outdoor area for the students.
