Project: Cook Islands Outriggers Association Training Equipment

Location:

252B Panama Road, Mt Wellington

Summary:

Kia Orana we are in desperate need of training equipment, the equipment that we have been using is outdated, they are worn out some needing repairs.  We are sharing life jackets adults and children as majority cant afford to buy  there own. Training times for teams are reduced due to insufficient numbers of  training equipment.

Identified need:

 

The club operate all year round, so the use of the training equipment is endless, with the increase in  paddlers each year the club cant keep up with the resources they have some parents or (adults working) are forced to buy their own or teams seek for funding for training gears.  If teams or individuals buy their own lifejackets they are under no obligation to leave it  for the club to share with with members although we encourge sharing as a way of caring for each other,   the club rely heavily on members club fees and fundraisers to keep operating year in  and year out. Not having enough training equipment meant that team training days/times are reduced to accommodate all.

Identified community outcomes:

 

The outcome of this will be having enough gears for everyone to train  dont have to wait for a team to finish, training  time can increase from 2 times a week to 3 or 4 times.  No one has to wait for life jackets. Members vary year after year and it is increasing all the time.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

By involving members of the community in the sport will increase their opportunity of having and active life, and being part of a club will give them the sense of belonging and connectedness, at the same time building confidence and knowledge and understanding that   through hard work  and team work reward is gained.  Learning leadership start somewhere  and why not waka ama. With so many negative distractions around the children at this day and age they are easily swayed but if they have something to distract them in a positive way then they wont have time to go looking for things to occupy their time and maybe  get themselves in trouble.  Doing waka ama will teach  team work, safety awareness, leadership skill, Those skills can be applied to work and community life.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

The 'future of work' is changing the ways in which young people must prepare and equip themselves to thrive. Young people need to develop their confidence, initiative, problem solving, tech and enterprise skills. We use the latest pedagogy of authentic learning, modelling, role play, statistics and fellowship to give young people both the actual strategies and the confidence to succeed. Only 3% of high school girls in NZ are considering a job in tech; only 2% of our top CEO's are women and women are significantly worse off in retirement. The decisions young women make while young are crucial in creating better pathways for them.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Our objectives are clearly defined: 

1.For our ChangemakeHer programme- Encourage more young women to take up and stick with STEAM subjects. Our results are sensational: In the first 6 months of 2018 almost 500 young women have participated in our ChangemakeHer programme. 90%- 100% of participants say that they are more likely to follow a STEAM pathway after attending our workshop; 90-100% say they have more confidence to create, problem solve and lead. 

2.For our GirlBoss LEAD programme - Our objective is to develop the next generation of leaders by developing confidence, equipping with 21st century skills and encouraging the development of girls own projects. More than 300 girls aged 12-18 have gone through our programmes in 2018. Sample results:Results from Westlake Girls LEAD- 42 participants: 100% increased confidence to network; 100% increased confidence to apply for work opportunites; 91% increased confidence to lead own project.

Orewa College (Year 7/8) - 41 Participants - 9 Maori - Results: 100% increased confidence to create, problem, solve and lead; 100% inspired to help their community

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

improve skills training, increase employment opportunities for the local workforce especially Maori and Pacific youth

 

We would like to offer two workshops to schools and alternative pathway providers in the Mangere-Otahuhu Board area. One is called ChangemakeHer - the purpose of the workshop is to encourage young women to consider future focussed STEM pathways which will open up future career opportunities. Suitable for Y7-13

The second is called "GirlBoss LEAD" . It has been developed for Y11-13. The focus is on the development of future ready skills such as personal branding, online profiles, networking, interviewing, confidence, applying for scholarships and leadership development. Our up to date content is developed by our 19 year old CEO, Alexia Hilbertidou who has expert international knowledge and experience to share. We can also adapt this programme for younger students Y8-10.

Project: Kids Safe With Dogs

Location:

Individual schools where the education programme is carried out

Summary:

Working with schools and teachers we deliver age appropriate education programmes on school premises to approximately 30 pupils at a time. We start with Three Golden Rules and then, depending on the age of the children we discuss different scenarios which help the

children to develop empathy by using "how would you feel if...". We created Jelly and our other cartoon characters to make the programmes more relatable for children and make it easier for them to remember what the programmes teach.

to put it into their newsletter what they are doing so that it get parents and caregivers

talking. We are also approaching the local news papers to see if they would be interested in

doing a feature on it. The logo from the board is put on our Social Media and website. Every

programme has a photograph taken which has the local board log, a thank you is put up on

out Facebook page.

Identified need:

 

Over the past 10 years there have been almost 24,000 reported dog bites on children under the age of 14 that require medical attention. That equates to 20% of the overall dog bites reported in NZ per annum. From research overseas it has shown that the best way to reduce dog bites is through education. In 2014 The Animals & Society Institute (MI USA) stated - “Varied kinds of studies strongly suggest that the most effective way to decrease dog aggression in general may be simply to educate people”

Identified community outcomes:

 

By educating children and teachers on how to behave around dogs and understanding why dogs behave the way they do; we can assist in reducing the number of dog bites or incidents that may occur. Through our programs we can teach children how to stay safe around dogs. This will bring down the number of dog bites and help to ensure less incidents occur in the future.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

By educating the children and teachers in our community we are actively contributing to

areas such as growing community spirit and engagement, safer communities, teaching

children empathy by getting them to recognise animals as sentinel beings, helping children

to learn and teach other family members and offering support and assistance to teachers to

allow them to have more confidence and understanding when they are taking the children

out of school grounds and into public areas where they may encounter dogs.

Project: Electrafying Neighbours

 

Location:

15 Electra Place, Mangere

 

Summary:

Our project is an event that will be held in our dead end street of Electra place, Mangere with the residents of the street.     

This event will involve all/most of the neighbours in our street getting to know each other, playing games for the kids, and partaking in a meal together.  This event will take place in early November promoting the Spring and connection of those close by.

Promotion:

We plan to keep the neighbours informed and encouraged about the event through our closed group.  We plan to invite only the people on the street to keep car traffic down.  Manukau Courier is aware of our event and I am scheduled to Lias with them in October.  We aim to have a write up about the event in the Manukau courier after the event has happened to promote the joys of connecting neighbours together.  We plan to take photos of the event and upload them to all participants Facebook, Instagram pages after the event, promoting neighbours and togetherness.

 

Community benefits

 

Identified need:

 

 

My grandparents have lived on this street for the last 50 years and people have come and gone in that time.  I feel that there is a disconnection with the people who live right next to us.  We are connected to the world through smart devices but are secluded in our own homes.  There are trade opportunities, mental health benefits and a sense of safety in connecting with your neighbours.  There is a dependancy in neighbours that I think we had in the pioneering age that we have lost.  We used to benefit each other, instead of thinking that the other persons existence was a hindrance, in the most extreme case of this thinking.

 

Identified community outcomes:

 

 

My mission statement is that all neighbours know and look out for each other, not harmoniously but in a practical loving way that evokes care, wellbeing, purpose of connectedness and community.

I want the neighbours to have a connection at this event where they are comfortable to talk to each other and offer conversation, help and smiles.  I want individuals in their own Streets/communities to be encouraged that it is not up to big companies or organisations to facilitate these events.  Events of connectedness and togetherness in any instance

 

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

Our project is an event where the people on our dead end street, get to know one another.  This will be done by holding a get-together in early November, before people start going on their holidays.  This will involve a meal together, games for the kids, camera recordings of people and their time there and their most memorable times on the cul-de-sac.    

Our project is the possibility of connection between different ages, ethnicities and background.  It encourages safer communities, trade opportunities and harmony.  From just meeting individually,  most of the people on the street, I felt a togetherness.  I believe that this event can help our street community connect and be a possibility for the wider community connecting with their neighbours.

Hireage of the gazebo's bouncy caste for the kids, food and admin related costs.

 

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

Without the activities provided in terms of games and activities for the kids to react with and help them to play with each other, we will have to have more minders looking after the kids.  this will stop the adults interacting with one another at the event.  This would hinder the performance of the event and the connection possibilities that this event would facilitate.  We could make up the difference by selling things and asking for help elsewhere.

Identified need:

 

Despite reductions in youth road casualties since 2009, statistics show that young drivers are still over-represented in crash statistics. Research also shows that many are not progressing through to full licence.  Alongside that is an accepted social norm that getting ‘legal’ is not a priority.   This is true for a large majority of south auckland including mangere.  There is a lot of secondary research including The Colab Drivers Licence Research 2016, Steering Aotearoa Driver Training Pilot Research 2017, ongoing updated statics from NZTA, media reports on young driver accidents but we also have strong first hand grass roots knowledge working with young people across south auckland our understanding of the current system learning approaching and inefficiencies too.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Reduction in Crime and stronger sense of community safety

A stronger local economy

A Place where communities thrive and belong

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

improve skills training, increase employment opportunities for the local workforce especially Maori and Pacific youth

 

By providing support to gain their Drivers Licence, CV and  Passport empowers the holder with confidence to achieve their goals and aspirations.  A Drivers Licence empowers confidence through education and knowledge to drive on New Zealand roads, as well they have a licence that meets a pre-requisite for most jobs.  Their education & employment opportunities are instantly increased.

Summary:

This Project will provide the use of our function room for many diverse not for profit groups who rely on community space to carry out there objectives and support their community purpose & outcomes.   Effectively many members of the public both local and national will be able to use this area for collaborating with local families and local groups.  This area will need the basic necessities to accommodate such groups, tables for basic group work activities, sufficient heating/air conditioning creating an interactive and thinking environment.  For this area to be pro-active we now look to provide the additional furniture to better support our groups so they can optimize the delivery of there programs to our local community.

We have the most proactive board in Auckland and we can see them at nearly every event that goes on in Mangere Otahuhu. Thank you for your support.  We will use our Pull up Banners, Facebook to promote and market the Local Boards Support

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

We have received feedback from members, guests, visitors, groups who have utilised our clubrooms. Our ground level is a large space and has the capacity to fit 250+.  Over the month we have hosted five groups and each of groups have asked for heating as they find it difficult to fully engage, participate and keep people proactive in there programs and/or stay for the full duration of there program.  In addition to this, we have been asked for more Tables currently we have bare minimum and would normally hire extra tables for groups.  We ask for support for an aborist report and tree removal cost as this is preventing the club from continuing with Stage 2 of our building project.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Our project aims to create inclusiveness and connectedness through the use of our facilities.  This will enable community groups, family, cultural and sports groups to engage and connect with our community through shared facilities and resource while delivering their programs in a more functional and adaptable space.  One of the outcomes will provide a base to support groups who do not currently have their own space to utilise and or lack the resource to deliver there objectives and outcomes for the wider community.  The programs we aim to deliver from our facilities will help provide opportunities for families to access local services, health education, sports providers, training programs, youth & parent programs, cultural events in the wider Mangere community.  The benefit of these programs will provide Mangere with a growth in community awareness, cultural & social engagement, positive behaviours, responsibility, connectedness and education in many areas.  We are a Hub in Mangere East embracing the many diversities that reflect Mangere, we stand today with a vision to better support and grow these groups.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

Primarily the clubrooms are used multifunctionally for various groups that provide free programs including Sports delivery, AGMs, Conferences, Social & Local Fundraisers, Pasifika Group Committee Meetings, Cultural Celebrations, Community Launch programs, Church Groups, Sports Tournaments, Youth programs, Parent-Run Playgroups and Health & Wellbeing Education.  The new furniture and Air Conditioning Pumps will allow the users to have more attendees and table space to utilise for group workings while keeping the area warm during the cold evenings.  In addition to this, we seek support for an arborist report and costs of tree removal to support us with Stage 2 of our building renovation.

Identified need:

 

SPCA Auckland helps protect approximately 15,000 animals in Auckland every year; animals who are sick, injured, lost, abused or simply abandoned. Many of the animals that come into the SPCA Auckland Animal Village in Mangere need additional care, treatment and socialisation before finding their new forever home. SPCA staff simply cannot do this alone. Our volunteer foster parents play an essential part in ensuring that animals go to their new homes in the community in the best state possible.

Identified community outcomes:

 

1. Animals who are well cared for, in good health, better trained and socialised and ready to be rehomed.

2. Safer homes and safer streets in our communities due to socialised, trained dogs, and fewer wild cats who can spread disease and kill wildlife.

3. Community members who feel involved, and who contribute to the wellbeing of their communities.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

Our fostering programme provides an opportunity for local community members to contribute to the safety and wellbeing of animals and humans by volunteering their time, resources and care. Animals who are fostered in the local community are healed (if sick or injured), cared for, trained and made suitable for rehoming. This removes dangerous dogs off our streets, means fewer abandoned and sick animals, and protects our local wildlife (birds in particular) by ensuring all animals are microchipped and desexed (reducing wild cat colonies etc.) Volunteers are the SPCA's lifeblood.

Our project involves facilitating 10 x two hour, structured Spoken Word poetry workshops at

schools in the Local Board area. There is no cost to the students or the schools. Participation

in the workshop will introduce participants to spoken word poetry, have them gain writing

and literacy skills, build their build confidence and self-esteem through self expression and

connection with other young people in a safe environment.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Our engagement and outreach is vital - where traditional education or youth development

programmes have not been able to engage at risk young people, Action Education has been

able to develop tools which hook young people into our services. The need for our services

is further demonstrated simply by the level of demand and popularity we experience e.g. for

many programmes we have waiting lists.

Identified community outcomes:

 

At Action Education we have 4 overarching community outcomes:

# Young people are actively involved in their own development

# Young people have the means to explore and express identity

# Young people have opportunities to develop and express their inherent creativity

# Young people are safe and free to express their diversity

We are is a youth development organisation with an edge. We use creative and

action-based methods to ignite the engagement of young people at all stages of their

development. This acts as a catalyst to begin a self-motivated journey of reflection and

exploration which strengthens their self-esteem, confidence and sense of identity. Spoken

Word poetry gives young people from every walk of life a way to express themselves. We

aim to provide a safe place in which young people can express and share their own personal

viewpoints. Through shared stories our intention is to empower young people to break down

stereotypes and isolation.

Individual benefits include

# literacy and performance development

# higher sense of self/identity

# strengthened relationships with peers and whanau

# development of pro social skills

# Opportunities to connect with other young people

# Self-confidence and resilience

# One to one creative mentoring and personal support

# Safe space to explore and reflect on identity

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

our diverse communities enjoy arts and cultural facilities that are vibrant, creative hubs for connecting, engaging and learning, and expressing identity

 

At Action Education we have four key youth aims. One of these is that Young people are

safe and free to express their diversity. Our youthworkers support programmes and events

that are all inclusive spaces, where young people from diverse backgrounds come together

and express themselves with the common thread being Spoken Word Poetry.

There are no barriers to our services, we host open mic public events and run workshops in

schools for young people who are drawn to spoken word and the arts.

Spoken Word gives young people a voice. Through this platform young people are able to

learn key communication skills and articulate their own thoughts according to their own

world concepts. Through this young people show incredible leadership skills within their

communities.

Our programmes receive an overall rating of 95% - we have direct reports form teachers

who can attest to improvement of literacy skills and school engagement with the

young people who have been involved with our programmes. Literacy, confidence and

determination are key skills to acquire to become an active, contributing, employable adult

Identified need:

 

Unfortunately most people perceive Hip Hop as being quite negative.  When the benefits of the HIp Hop Culture I know as a way of expression for not only young people in society, but all people. Has a greater merit then what is perceived or seen.  The use of the artforms of the hiphop culture in a positive light through such an event / festival as this can help bridge this divide, to bring hope and a positive future to not only this generation, but many generations to come.

Identified community outcomes:

 

The arts have been heralded as a medicine for all kinds of problems.  Arts improve academic performance and student discipline.  The arts revitalize neighbourhoods and promote economic prosperity.  Participation in the arts improves physical and psychological well being.  The arts provide a catalyst for the creation of social capital an the attainment of important community goals.

 

This event gives our local artists an international platform to aim towards and creates opportunities to connect and empower the community through music and dance. Also to raise awareness of the artform and the positive and healthy lifestyle choices it provides.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

our diverse communities enjoy arts and cultural facilities that are vibrant, creative hubs for connecting, engaging and learning, and expressing identity

 

this is an event for families to take part in and enjoy the arts and culture.  Celebrating local artists and talent at a local community Arts Centre facility.  Connecting people and their communities is a safe environment across a diverse age and cultural background.

Project: Mangere Bridge Playcentre Outdoor All weather Enclosure

Location:

Mangere Bridge Playcentre, 17 Domain Road

Summary:

To Install outdoor blinds on existing deck,  for the enhancement of available play areas in wet conditions. This will enable us to provide  a semi-connected space, lessening the disturbance of play for a child in either the deck extension area or main facility. Attached is a picture of the area of our building which will be enhanced through this project.

Promotion:

We will promote the project through social media. Through Facebook we will promote an open day for those who are interested in seeing our facilities and knowing more about Playcentre and organise specific activities for the children on the deck to showcase the versatility of the area and how much fun messy play can be.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Mangere Bridge Playcentre have been in our current building for 49 years. We have observed that the deck is under-utilised in Winter and Wet weather. We have consulted with Playcentre whanāu about how to improve this. The new roof structure over our deck area provides the opportunity to increase the available play areas/space especially in the event of wet weather.  Being able to enclose the space with blinds will provide a space for music messy play or other activities which can be temporarily closed off from the rest of the building. This will help with the mixed age play and in eliminating possible disturbance of babies who may be breastfeeding on a couch nearby.

Identified community outcomes:

 

The project will enhance the outdoor space at Mangere Bridge Playcentre, which is used by Playcentre whanāu for 4 ECE sessions a week. The project will enable our Playcentre to provide a dry outdoor space where our Tamariki can play in all weather. The benefits will extend to the Tamariki currently enrolled in our Early Childhood Education service as well as to their immediate and wider families, and to past members. It will also be of benefit to the wider community as our centre is used by community groups such as S.P.A.C.E. (Supporting Parents Alongside Children’s Education), PORSE and other local groups and for Cluster meetings for Auckland Council Sustainable Schools ECE group. The centre is also used by our Playcentre whanāu outside of session for celebrations such as Matariki, Diwali, Christmas, Birthday parties and adhoc events for the community. We also intend to hold a community celebration to make the 60th anniversary of the opening of our centre (and 50 years in our current building) next year, and this space will enable us to host the community comfortably regardless of the weather and help us showcase our beautiful facilities and encourage the community to engage with learning through play.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectedness

 

Our mission is  "Whānau Tupu Ngātahi - Families growing together. Community is strong and vibrant when the families within have an active role within the community. Our philosophy of parents as first teachers is supported through the Playcentre Education which administers the NZQA approved Playcentre Diploma in Early Childhood and Adult Education. The course assists parents in developing their parenting skills and their ability to facilitate early childhood education in a playcentre setting. The programme also helps members to learn how to work in a cooperative as well as being the training ground for Playcentre adult educators. The adult education programme is delivered at no cost to the learner. As parents play an active role within their child/rens education, their opportunity to also connect with the community around them increases. Having a dry and secure outdoor area will increase the variety of activities that we can set up during our sessions and allow us to have groups of children inside and out simultaneously irrespective of the weather conditions.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

Māori focus - tikanga (practises), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language)

We like to use our outside space for music and singing.  Over the past year we have had a focus on developing our use of Te Reo Maori on session and in particular encouraging the tamariki to engage in singing waiata together. The covered deck space is an ideal place to do this and the blinds would enable us to use the space more frequently with sufficient shelter to protect us all in adverse weather.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - During the recent upgrade of our deck we included an improved ramp for wheelchair access to our centre, and the new deck has more room for wheelchair users to move around more freely to participate in activities.  We welcome families with disabilities and currently have a blind parent who is keen to use the deck to share music with our tamariki.  Using the blinds to maintain a dry outdoor space supports our whanau and enhances the use and safety of the area.

Target ethnic groups:

All/everyone

Promoting SmokeFree:

Our entire premises are already 100% smokefree and we have policies to ensure that our tamariki are not exposed to smoke.

Zero waste minimisation

Not directly. However, we do work to incorporate a zero waste ethos into all our practice, and will endeavour to ensure that minimal waste is created through the project and any packaging or wrapping supplied with the blinds is recycled appropriately (or repurposed within our Playcentre for creative 'junk' play)
