Data gives us power Hei homai hiko te raraunga ki a mātou

Data helped Ezra Hirawani, Ben Armstrong and Nau Mai Rā supply affordable power to whānau across Aotearoa New Zealand.

Data helps us connect whānau to affordable power Hei āwhina tēnei mea te raraunga i a tātou kia tūhono i ngā whānau ki te hiko ngāwari noa te utu

Ezra Hirawani and Ben Armstrong saw census data which showed 130,000 families were living without power.

Being parents themselves, they didn’t want other families to have to make the hard choice between kai and power.

That is why they formed Nau Mai Rā, which supplies affordable power to whānau. Now, families across Aotearoa can get the power they need and afford life’s other essentials.

If we have good specific data about what whānau are going through, then we can have bespoke solutions and make those kind of decisions to be able to deliver the impact for that problem.
