Manaaki Committee - What do we do?

The Manaaki Committee is responsible for providing long term strategic and social committment of the Trust to its Iwi, Hapū and Beneficiaries.

To date the committee commenced engagement with the Ministry of Education providing an Environmental Scan of Education in Pāhauwera which led to the development of an Education Strategy for the Trust.

The same engagement occurred with Te Taura Whiri with the same outcome of a Te Reo Strategy for Pāhauwera.

More recently, the Committee have been working hard on developing a Housing Strategy.

Te Reo Strategy
