TE WHAKAORA TANGATA


Established as a charitable trust in 2010, Te Whakaora Tangata means “Life Restoration for the People”. Our vision is to see once vulnerable families living well and children given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

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 unraveling with increasing numbers of whanau at breaking point. Their homes bear witness to some of the most harrowing social statistics in NZ.

We believe it’s impossible for parents to create a safe, nurturing environment for their children if the important relationships in their own lives are dysfunctional. Therefore Te Whakaora’s work is uniquely focused on our three “R’s” – RESTORING relationships by addressing past trauma; RESOURCING families with tools to live well; and RECONNECTING people with opportunities to study, work and give back to their community.

The values of faith, family, partnership and stewardship underpin our work with 150-200 parents every year. The success of Te Whakaora’s work is not only reflected by the number of families strengthened, but by the reality of hope-filled relationships and the breakdown of intergenerational cycles of family dysfunction. Since our organisation was established in 2010, we’ve helped to transform the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged families – changing futures for more than 2000 vulnerable children.
