Tairākau is an online financial literacy hub for young Māori, specifically for 16–24 year olds.

Tairākau provides guidance on money matters, a four-step process to make a spending plan, and a variety of tools to encourage smart spending. The central website works with multi-platform apps to allow users to manage their spending on the go, including a spending diary where users can record their casual spending each day at a push of a button on their phone.

This is real-world learning that helps users in their everyday lives. We developed Tairākau in close consultation with iwi and the Commission for Financial Capability, including extensive research with the target audience.
