Congratulations Tania Jones

Since last year we’ve known that our amazing Project lead Tania Jones was hapu and would be leaving us for a while to welcome her new family member into the world. We were super thrilled that Tania gave birth to a healthy young boy on Friday 3 March. Both Tania and her young pepi are doing very well. Tania has kindly shared a photo below.

Tania has been one of the most important members of the WWP journey since its earliest days in 2019, and she has had a hugely positive impact on the shape and direction of the project since that time. While we look forward to Tania returning in the future, we wish her well at this really important time and wish her and her whanau all the very best.

With Tania’s absence, we have been searching for somebody to fill Tania’s very capable shoes and continue the important work she, with our manu taki, have started on the Waikato Kai Challenge. We have been delighted with the interest shown in the role and the quality of candidates, and will announce the new Kai Challenge Project lead very shortly.
