About The Trust
The Healing Song - Pese Wairua
The Trust was birthed out of a heart to support community projects that are whānau driven; encourage social enterprise; and advocate for using models of collective wellness and healing that are underpinned by cultural and spiritual values.
Zion Tauamiti is a New Zealand born Samoan born and raised in Christchurch.
He started in the community lane as a assistant chaplain in Hillmortan Hospital delivering music programmes for inpatients. He then moved into Māori suicide prevention at He Waka Tapu before taking on a youth mentoring role at Bros for Change.
In March 2019 he began setting up a wellbeing focused charity developing his own models and frameworks for healing.
This trust is the beginning.
