Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou is committed to supporting tamariki to work towards their goals and stride into the future with confidence.
Helping make this possible is the support from our sponsors and partners. Their support includes financial and goods-in-kind donations, as well as volunteering their time, skill, and resources. Our supporters share our belief that children of people in prison are children of promise and potential.
We are very grateful for their koha and thank them for their willingness to commit to supporting positive futures for children of people in prison.
Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou is fortunate to have a loyal group of caring individuals, who have extensively supported Pillars to work with children of people in prison.
We honour them as Kaimanaaki Motuhake for their long-term commitment and ongoing support.

Kaimanaaki means to cherish and conserve, sustaining care and respecting the protection and wellbeing of others. Bestowing blessings and encouragement. Uplifting the mana of the community. It is a prestige title filled with humility, support, kindness, generosity and aroha.
Motuhake is mana enhancing, self deterring and tino rangatiratanga. Prioritising holistic wellbeing, safety and responsibility. Key to upholding the values of Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou.
There is a saying, 'Maa wai e manaaki'? Who will take care of us? It is our Kaimanaaki Motuhake.
