Kia ora, I realise this post is a bit old, but I am just working through a back log from last year, I would recommend talking to a connetion of mine who has direct experience in the area of seeking funding and setting up an organisation for Maori Women, here is the link to their site, Teresa is a smart and connected woman. I recommend connecting with her and her team to see if she would be willing to shed some light on the best opportunities here.
