Our story

"Acknowledging the aspirations of our Tupuna"

Our organisation is called Tuhiata Mahi Ora, it symbolises the hope and potential of Rangatahi and their whānau.


Tuhiata is a phase of dawn, the coming of the light from Te Hiwa (darkness) .


Tuhiata Mahi Ora works with Rangatahi and their whānau in the Far North whose lives have been impacted in a way that is having an affect on their ability to reach their full potential.

Our staff team have an in-depth knowledge of the needs of our Rangatahi, whānau and the community. We can deliver with a passion for our community with a commitment to be transparent and outcome focused.

Our Tupuna had aspirations for our people to thrive, as they did, in this modern world. We believe the sacrifices they made have laid the foundations for us to rebuild and return to our value system.
