Poipoiā te kākano, kia puāwai. 
Nurture the seed and it will blossom

We are a community based in Manukau (South Auckland, New Zealand) who have had enough of seeing our people over-represented in negative statistics; statistics such as domestic violence, poverty, mental health, suicide, incarceration and preventable diseases such as heart conditions, diabetes, smoking-related illnesses and so on.

To tackle this inequality we formed Ngahere Communities Ltd to work in partnership with local and central government, building an environment for our people, Maori and Pacific people, to thrive through creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship

Ngahere Foundation was set-up in 2020 to support the impact-driven activity of Ngahere Communities, providing the structure to address some of the systemic issues that vulnerable communities face, while also releasing Ngahere Communities to build an economic base for the future.

Ngahere Foundation utilises the power of education and entrepreneurship to close the gap and release potential.


Our Vision

Nurturing environments where generations of creative minds thrive.
