MOEMOEĀ – OUR VISION
“HE MANA KĀINGA, HE KĀINGA ORA -THRIVING MĀORI WHĀNAU”
Thriving whānau are at the heart of our vision, and we understand that a thriving home - he kāinga ora - is essential to achieving and maintaining whānau wellbeing.
‘Mana Kāinga’ is about whānau having the power to choose, influence and create their home environment.
PŪMANAWA – OUR MISSION
“KIA PARA AI TE HUARAHI KI TE ŪKAIPŌ - FORGING MĀORI HOUSING PATHWAYS”
Our mission emphasises the cultural and spiritual aspect of Māori housing initiatives. For us to thrive as Māori, we must be able to connect to our pito, our whenua.
Though it may not be possible for us all to live close to our ancestral lands, being able to connect to our ūkaipō is still fundamental to our wellbeing and sense of belonging as Māori.
