Who are we.....

Ngahau Davis, has worked for the trust since 1994, returning home to Moerewa after living in both Auckland & Wellington. Ngahau is a whanau support worker, drug & alcohol educator and community development worker. Ngahau is usually heard before he's seen, and when you do see him, you dont forget him! Ngahau is married to Debbie with 4 tamariki

Helen Heta is our accounts lady, and has worked for the trust for the last 2 years. Helen is lovely... everybody says that! and takes everything in her stride, between paying all our wages (most important) and our bills(not so important) she looks after Cyril (her husband) and their 7 children, the smaller ones can usually be found around her feet at the trust after school or during the holidays and they are a welcome addition to all thats happening everyday at the Trust

Parani Penney manages the OSCAR, Holiday programs & Homework centre, when she isnt doing that she is making sure everything in the office is running smoothly, if that isnt enuf she is usually chasing Laurie, for drivers licence details or Ngahau & Cyril for stats for contracts... if the midnight oil is burning at the trust its usually Parani (and she finds it really diffucult hiding her red cape under her clothes) she is of course... Wonderwoman

Tania Munroe is our brand new office support person, she has been working for us officially for the last 2 weeks, but has done heaps of stuff for us over the last few years, our office support workers dont seem to last very long. I think we overwork them, so good luck Tania..... (we've got bets on you lasting the longest!)

Joe Riwhi is our youth worker, Joe spent many years working at the freezing works and felt that it was time for a change, he is awesome with young people, and he has recently been awarded the Moerewa Medal of Honour... for his services to the community, (looking after Matenga) One other note about Joe is never lend him anything.... he usually loses it and never let him near anything electrical, he will usually try to fix it, even if its not broken..

Kimo Peita aka The Retrofitting man, as he is known up here in the north. Kimo manages the Retrofitting Team and the Housing Repairs Project. Kimo has created many opportunities for options in the building area so watch this space. Kimo is another one that is usually burning the midnight oil at the Trust, a very hard working member of the team.

Kay Tana Miss Efficient, you can find Kay every afternoon between 3 - 5.30 pm working with the hordes of kids who attend the OSCAR program and the Homework centre(give this woman a gold medal)



Rosina Riwhi Zena is still attending college and works at the trust on a part time basis, she is to Kay, what Robin is to Batman. She is full of energy which is needed when working with all the tamariki at the OSCAR program. She also is on deck in helping to run the holiday programs, another invaluable member of our team

Debbie Davis job shares the Kaitataki A Rohe position with Suz. They are involved in marketing Moerewa as a visitor destination. She can usually be found at "Kupenga" 2 doors up from Tuna Cafe, knee deep in town plans and computers...


Cyril Heta, Mista do it... after all the talking is done and when the rubber meets the road Cyril is one of the guys you can always count on to do the mahi. He works at the Trust as a whanau support worker and a drug & alcohol educator, and everything else that is needed to be done



Suz Tetai job shares the Kaitataki A Rohe postion, part owner of the very popular Tuna Cafe... Suz brings her own special flair and creativity to the team. Another very hard worker, and another awesome product of Ngati Manu
