About Us


Since Te Whakaora Tangata was established as a Charitable Trust in 2010, we've helped to transform the lives of over 1200 of the highest-risk families – positively impacting more than 3000 vulnerable children.

South Auckland and the Far North have colourful, vibrant cultures, warm hospitality, and rich intergenerational stories that weave families together. Yet sadly the social fabric in these communities and many others, are unravelling with increasing numbers of whānau 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 and the Far North's most vulnerable families.
