The Cook Islands Development Action Plan 2013 – 2015 (CIDAP) is the National Framework that guides our strategic direction. Hosted by Takitumu Cultural and Arts Inc., in 2012 the CIDAP, a year-long project, was shaped by 9 regions across New Zealand: Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Tokoroa, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, and Invercargill.
From these communities came 11 Priorities, with 59 Actions for further scoping and potential implementation.
Currently, we’re working on several key projects identified by the regions:
- Cook Islands Language Week Project: Partnering with the Ministry of Pacific Peoples (MPP) to coordinate CILW across New Zealand.
- oneCHILD Project: A full immersion Cook Islands Early Learning Centre
- Social Housing Project: Working towards becoming housing providers for families in need
- Akirata Ou Project: A festival that celebrates all aspects of the Cook Islands culture.
