Connecting people with opportunities for a better Aotearoa New Zealand

Stay up to date with our latest

The Moko Foundation was born from the generosity of New Zealanders who saw the need to support our communities. 

Our mission is to support and empower communities, with a focus on vulnerable children and young people. We uphold our vision and mission by providing opportunities in Leadership, Health and Education.

Leadership

Through our rangatahi leadership programmes we aim to support and empower communities with a focus on vulnerable children and young people.

Health

iMoko™ is an innovative, digitally enhanced healthcare app developed to increase access to health services for children.

Education

Our Kaitaia based research centre’s overarching principle is to create new knowledge to produce better health outcomes.

Support us and change the course of a childs life today!

Rangatahi Stories

Josephine Newton had to leave her family and her home in order to live her best life. Now she works in a restaurant at night to support herself, pay rent, buy food and attend school. See how Vanguard helped her to achieve the education that is so important to her.

Our Partners

Without the support of our Partners and Sponsors our work would not be possible.

If you would like to learn about how you can get involved with our foundation and help make a difference,  please contact us today.

Congratulations to Manaia Lewis-Wano who was elected this evening as this month’s chairperson for the Moko Foundations National Youth Board

Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tūhoe

Manaia Lewis-Wano is a year 13 student and prefect at Rotorua Girls High School. She is guided by the influences, teachings, and tikanga of her whānau, and te ao Māori.

Her future aspirations are to study towards a conjoint bachelor of Social Sciences with a Bachelor of Law, so she can further assist her hapu and Iwi in these specific areas of interest.

She stands by the whakatauākī “Hai aha au te mate noa ake i taku pākārito ka tupu” as it is a reminder of resilience and service, and to stay grounded in the face of big decisions.

Manaia is privileged to be a part of an amazing panel, and is excited to create positive impacts for rangatahi around Aotearoa.
