Providing support and respite for First Responders and New Zealand Defence Force personnel.Nationwide
Te Kiwi Māia - The Courageous Kiwi Charitable Trust.
We are a charity which provides rehabilitation, recovery and respite to our people, who - as a result of their role in safeguarding and caring for New Zealanders - have physical or psychological injuries. We enable our people and their families to continue healthy, positive lives.
Our people will have have access to the support to succeed in their physical and mental wellness.
This will be achieved through the provision of facilities, equipment, services or assistance for the rehabilitation, recovery and care of such individuals, as well as their immediate families, who are in need.
Our aim is to establish a homestead and working farm designed and equipped to foster physical, psychological and emotional rehabilitation and recovery; somewhere for those who have committed to our country, and who have been injured through their work, to recuperate and refresh. This will be achieved via the provision of a supportive and inclusive environment, professional assistance, access to a variety of services, and opportunities to participate in activities that promote mental wellness; such as pottery, cooking or yoga classes, building tuition, sports and fitness, or assisting on the farm.
Ultimately, Te Kiwi Māia’s goal is to support and assist those whose role has been to safeguard and care for all New Zealanders, so they can continue healthy, positive lives.
Te Kiwi Māia’s Charitable Trust number is CC56958.

We are just too excited to wait any longer! We have decided to take pre-sales on our awesome new TKM t-shirt.
We reached out to the very talented artist Renee Thyne, who also happens to work full time in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. We gave her our brief and she came up with this beautiful design.
"My idea for the design was to promote mental wellness. The helmets represent the heads of our responders and the heart not only represents the health of those personnel but the support of the person wearing the shirt.” - Renee Thyne
Help us spread the word - tell all your family and friends! All profits go to TKM in support of our first responders and NZDF personnel.
Thanks to everyone involved for making this happen and to our wonderful models from the RNZN.
