How do you get economic security in difficult times?  According to Maori Development Minister Willie Jackson, it is by investing in wahine and rangatahi - women and young people.  $28.5 million over the next two years was announced in the Budget to strengthen whānau resilience through developing leadership within key cohorts of whānau leaders, wāhine and rangatahi Māori.
Willie Jackson explains how the money will fund development, leadership and programmes focussed on lifting the skills of wahine and rangatahi.
