In 2001 the Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated Board visited all marae in Kahungunu to kōrero with whānau about the future aspirations of the iwi. Information was collated and became the foundation of the Ngāti Kahungunu 25 Year Vision. Over the following 5 years, the Iwi moved quickly into strategic mode and plans were developed to promote the aspirations of the Iwi and enable access to quality health services, quality housing opportunities, quality education, opportunities for employment and cultural development initiatives that would inspire and strengthen whānau wellbeing. In 2007 the Te Ara Toiora Wellbeing Strategy was developed to provide a framework to underpin the 25 year vision and connect the Kahungunu strategies.
