About us

The Moko Foundation is a non-profit charitable trust established to build a better Aotearoa- New Zealand through Health, Leadership and Education.

Founded in 2011 by Former New Zealander of the Year, Dr. Lance O’Sullivan and Tracy MacFarlane, the Moko Foundation continues to better and influence lives and communities around the country.

Our track record continues to grow as we’ve seen hundreds of rangatahi pass through our leadership programmes and gain access to an exclusive network or mentors and support.

In 2020, we welcomed iMoko Health Services to the Moko Foundation with building the capacity of providing health care to thousands of tamariki in our communities.

Waharoa ki te Toi is a Kaitaia based research centre whose overarching principle is to create new knowledge to produce better health outcomes. It is a unique partnership model between the MOKO Foundation and the Maurice Wilkins Centre, which is a New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence that brings together over 150 of the country’s top scientists and clinicians from across our top Universities.  

The success of the Moko Foundation comes down to the passion and dedication of our amazing staff that go above and beyond to make a change and a difference in Aotearoa.

Over the last two days we have been hosting our Leadership and life skills workshop at Green Bay High School in Auckland!

What an amazing programme and opportunity to expose our rangatahi to, leadership, public speaking, team work, impromptu, negotiations, thinking outside the box and much more!

We are super exited about our partnership with Green Bay High and look forward to further activities and engagements with these rangatahi!
