Hine-Ahu-One Toi is a branch of the Māori Women’s Welfare League.


Wendy’s goal in creating this Rōpū (branch) is to assist in the establishment of a series of workshops aimed at empowering wāhine and Rangatahi through creative processes such as traditional Māori arts and crafts, Te Reo, visual arts, performance, design, technology and entrepreneurship.


Hine-Ahu-One Toi’s Kaupapa is about healing through creativity and inspiring Māori wāhine to live their best lives by providing a safe and supportive environment for them to learn skills that they can take with them on their life journeys.


If you are a Wāhine Māori and interested in joining our Hine-Ahu-One Toi whanau, please visit Hine-Ahu-One Toi on FaceBook or register at  Māori Women’s Welfare League.
