He Akoranga Mātauranga

The learning programme is a series of modules, filled with videos, slides, quiz questions and practical tasks.

It weaves together the expertise of MWDI and PledgeMe, with kaiwhakaako from both organisations.

Launch on PledgeMe

When you've completed the education programme and fully prepped for your campaign, you can launch on PledgeMe.

Your campaign will be identifiable as a Tā Koha campaign, and will also feature on this website right here


Crowdfunding enables anyone to turn a business plan or goal into reality. It's really easy to post a campaign on PledgeMe, offer rewards and go out to your whanaū, iwi and wider community to ask for support. If your campaign meets its target, you receive the funding and, in return, your crowd (a.k.a “pledgers”) are rewarded.
