From Wahine to Mana Wahine

For the last 7 years, as co-founder of the charity RAW, Annah Stretton has worked with some of New Zealand’s most socially disadvantaged and disrupted wahine and their tamariki all caught in a net of intergenerational chaos. Walking this RAW journey has opened her eyes to the social problems these wahine face:

Poverty & Crime

Addictions & Violence

Social Injustice

Unconscious bias & exclusion

PLUS, what it takes to empower them to create independent, sustainable and healthy futures for themselves and their whānau.

“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
BUT TEACH A WOMAN TO FISH, EVERYONE EATS
FOR A LIFETIME.”
Ritu Sharma

The HOPE FISH Model

The Hope Fish model is about developing a solidarity structure that delivers real opportunity, real inclusion, and real support to socially disadvantaged wahine and their tamariki. Hope Fish wahine will become the change makers for the future generations.

Co-creating a purposeful vision

Developing an activation strategy

Resourcing an activation strategy

Walking alongside the activation effort

THE HOPE FISH CHARTER

A considered, collaborative and inclusive vision for wahine and their tamariki.
A hand up, not a hand out. Teaching women to fish, to catch Kai Moana, in a way that truly nourishes and sustains them as they carve out an independent and prosperous life.
Connection and solidarity – knowing that what is good for Māori is good for NZ
Respecting a Māori world view by placing it at the heart of every change journey
Effecting change one wahine at a time. The impact of one wahine being taught to FISH flows through to the whole Whānau and breaks the cycle of social injustice.
