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.

Fructose in schools study - fISS

The Fructose in Schools Study (FISS) was initiated by the MOKO Foundation in 2017 to rural schools within the Far North. This research is trying to understand more about the rates of absorption of the sugar fructose across the New Zealand population and the effects this has on metabolic health outcomes. The MOKO Foundations role in this program is delivering this initiative to Far North schools as a means to educate students about the science of sugar and importance of health whilst capturing relevant data

Our Partners

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

We would like to congratulate one of our successful recipients of our latest round of tertiary scholarships for school leavers in 2021, Nia Kara from Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Kaikohe. She is currently in Auckland starting her first year of university at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in a certificate of Applied Sciences. The MOKO Foundation is very proud to be supporting local tauira who are aspiring to pursue science and health pathways.

“A huge thank you to the Moko Foundation for my 2020 scholarship! The pūtea was great but the advice and guidance helped me determine a pathway I’m happy with. I’m looking forward to my study in 2021 and a continued relationship with the Moko Foundation through the mentoring they are providing. Ngā mihi nui kia koutou e te Moko Foundation!"

We would also like to congratulate another successful recipient, Kona Hippolite nō NgāPuhi me Waikato and attended Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Kaikohe. She is aiming to start her bachelor of physiology therapy at Wintec in Hamilton.

“Nei rā te tuku mihi ki Te Moko Foundation mō tēnei koha hei āwhinatia i ahau i runga i tōku haerenga mātauranga . E kore ngā kupa e taea te whakatinana i ōku mihi ki a koutou katoa i tēnei wā.
I am very grateful for this opportunity to receive financial support from The Moko Foundation. I plan to use this scholarship to help cover the costs involved in completing my practical placements (including travel, uniform and study resources).”
