Enhanced Taskforce Green

Starting from the 27th of November, Mauri Oho are working alongside Rural Support Trust Hawke’s Bay under a contract called ‘Enhanced Taskforce Green’ (ETFG), a Ministry of Social Development initiative.

This new form of mahi was created as a result of the major weather event that occurred during the summer of 2023 that affected many local farmers across the North Island, particularly in the Hawkes Bay region. This created a demand for cyclone recovery assistance.

Our kaimahi, along with a few new recruits to the team took it upon themselves to meet this demand. Over the course of six months, workers and supervisors are assisting land owners with clean-up projects around their properties.

This mahi includes but is not limited to;

  • Fence repair
  • Clearing debris
  • Cattle bridge repairs

Taking opportunities like this one means that kaimahi in Mauri Oho will gain new practical skills, form new relationships and strengthen the bond between themselves working in a new field.

It is an honour to undertake this mahi and aligns with our values.
~Enhancing the mauri of our people and the taiao by providing ongoing mahi.
