What is involved?

Mahi Toa includes three kete (learning kits) which will be delivered to your home at regular intervals throughout the 12-month duration.  Each kete includes all the learning material you will need like DVDs, CDs, magazines, booklets and the assessment material.

A special feature of the programme is the mentoring DVDs featuring New Zealand personalities such as Bentham Ohia, Temuera Morrison, The Mad Butcher, Tiki Taane, Paul Henare, Simon Gault, Nathan Fa’avae and many others.
