About Us


Since Te Whakaora Tangata was established as a Charitable Trust in 2010, we've helped to transform the lives of hundreds of at-risk families – positively impacting more than 2000 vulnerable children.

South Auckland has a colourful, vibrant culture, a warm hospitality, and rich intergenerational stories that weave families together. Yet sadly the social fabric in many communities is unravelling with increasing numbers of whanau at breaking point. Their homes bear witness to some of the most harrowing social statistics in New Zealand.

We warmly welcome your support to help create a brighter future for South Auckland's most vulnerable families.
