The Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust promotes, supports and undertakes programmes, actions and initiatives to beautify Auckland.
‘Together with our community, beautifying and enriching our living environment’ is what we are all about.
In 2001 the Manukau City Council established The Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust (MBCT) and charged it with the task of dealing with the enormous amount of graffiti and vandalism in the region as a Council Controlled Organisation.
Today the trust does so much more than just remove graffiti from the six Southern Local Board Regions. In fact, not only do we keep the streets tag free, we also clean and clear the Road and Rail Corridor in this area and inject some profits into protecting and beautifying the environment with our communities.
We are continually working with the community to beautify Auckland through environmental education and community events.
Not only does MBCT beautify the road, rail and keep our region tag free we also continually work with the community to beautify Auckland through environmental education, supporting local community projects, local clean-ups, murals, planting and supporting community events.
The Trust host’s three signature programmes in aim to educate our communities around sustainably protecting and beautifying the environment alongside 35 environmental partners.
‘Eye on Nature’ is a free annual event held at the Auckland Botanical Gardens over March/April which aims to make environmental messages fun and engaging for children.
'Tiaki - Guardians of the Environment' is a new annual project for South Auckland youth to compete in alongside environmentally conscious innovative organisations. Together, they explore a science or technology project in aim to create a sustainable solution for our local environment.
‘Boomer Business’ offers a space for people aged 50+ and retirees to get back into projects. The Trust provides the Boomers with a full functional working shed for men and women with sewing, cooking, computer, painting, engineering, wood work and garden classes or equipment. Boomer's give back to the community by providing these skills and expertise to a large range of environmental and community projects.
