Tamaiti o le Moana 2033 is a report that looks at the strengths and needs of Pacific peoples within the context of Pacific child wellbeing.

1 in 4 Pacific children continue to live in poverty. In a year of budget reprioritisations, we ask that all leaders – government, corporate, community – prioritise children in their investments.
