Kainga Pasifika Services Model
Our Kainga Pasifika Services model was created by Tevita Faka’osi and is based on a Pasifika outlook on Safe and Healthy Relationships in 3 main areas of our lives; Relationships, Culture and Spirituality. At the centre is Mo'ui Kakato - Well Being. Kainga Pasifika Services utilizes this model to work effectively with our Pasifika communities and families in Hawkes Bay.
This model is under a copyright. However, we are happy to share an electronic copy with the proviso that its source is acknowledged and that people link in with Tevita Faka’osi before the model is used. We discourage use of the model if people haven’t been trained in the Kainga Pasifika Services model, as we don’t want to risk people using it incorrectly and getting poor results thus bringing it into disrepute.
