POIPOIA TE KAKANO KIA PUAWAI

NURTURE THE SEED AND IT WILL BLOSSOM

Mahitahi Trust has eight guiding values known as Nga Pou E Waru.

These core values are fundamental to the way we operate as a Kaupapa Maori Provider and how we deliver on our vision and mission.

Nga Pou E Waru are integrated throughout the organisations policies, procedures and service standards as such it is an expectation that all of our Kaimahi practice within these principles in all aspects of their mahi.

It is with these pou underpinning our every practice that Mahitahi Trust realises Maori for Maori by Maori service provision.
