What a great way to round up our year at Le Va! Le Va is thrilled to welcome our newest Board members, Taito Eddie Tuiavii and Dr David Tan, to our governance team. We can’t wait to share in your knowledge and dedication as we share our mission and continue #inspiringtomorrow #unleashingfullpotential. 

An alumnus of the University of Auckland, Taito Eddie brings a wealth of experience in public affairs and is a seasoned facilitator, often moderating forums locally and internationally. With a keen interest and extensive background in deliberative democracy, Taito Eddie served a research fellowship in the United States looking at the decision-making practices of indigenous diaspora. For the past seven years he has collaborated with researchers, practitioners and elected members in more than 30 countries, in developing deliberative communities.

New Zealand-born of Samoan and Malaysian-Chinese descent, David’s background is in Paediatric Medicine and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He is working in integrated primary care and specialist. David is a  believer that evidence-based education, prevention, and early intervention delivered by a Pacific workforce are drivers of prosperity and positive developmental trajectories for New Zealand’s Pasifika youthful population.
