At the age of 12, Maia set up the Lazy Sneakers charity to rehome used sneakers to children in need.

Hiria Te Rangi — Kaiwhakahaere (CEO) Whare Hauora
Hiria loves her community and loves technology, so leading Whare Hauora was a natural role for her.
Whare Hauora goes into Marae, community centres and schools to teach low-income families about Whare Sensors, how to build them and how they can help whanau make informed decisions about how their home affects their health.
With 20 years in technical and business roles spanning open data, open source, digital technologies and infrastructure, Hiria relishes her role and the difference Wharehauora can make in Aotearoa.
