Community Language Funds

Pacific families value, nurture and experience: cultural pride + positive connections to cultural traditions and values + aspirations and focus on future generations + a strong sense of values. Language is a key component and also provides an ability to talanoa and communicate positively and effectively without fear of response. There are a range of community language funds available through the Ministry of Pacific Peoples.
