Te Kiwi Māia

Providing support and respite for First Responders and New Zealand Defence Force personnel.


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.
