To empower and support Pacific peoples in transformational ways toward healthy, resilient and prosperous future.


Our guiding principle: 
“Equipping our people with tools to fish.”

This quote is the guiding principle that underpins the design and delivery of the Mapu Maia service. By this we aim to give Pacific people the means to develop their own sustainable solutions to address the issues that life throws at them.
Our Mapu Maia approach emphasises the concept of Vā – the space between.
We recognise that to be an effective service, appropriate engagement is crucial.  Through the Va Tagata model of engagement, we approach counselling in a Pasifika context through talatalanoa (deep conversation). This encompasses a person’s whole self – physical, mental, spiritual and aiga (family).  

We Value


We believe in placing people first in everything we do and remain focused on who we are reaching out to in our work.  We believe relationships are the foundation of who we are.

We Value


Our culture, language, identity, spiritual beliefs, physical and mental-being is centre to who we are.  Our well-being is obtained when all these are in balance. 

We Value


We believe that respect is shown in all aspects of our work; in our language and behaviour towards each other and the communities we work with. 

We Value


 I am not one, I am us.
We belong to a collective; we value that as Pacific, we belong to a family, to a community, interacting towards a shared purpose.
