"Mā te tini, mā mano, ka rapa te whai.  
By many, by thousands, the work will be accomplished"

Tracy hails from Te Arawa.  After many years in Rotorua, Tracy and Lance moved to the beautiful Far North (their home since 2004).

Mother to seven children aged between 8 and 24 years, Tracy identifies with the challenges facing whānau today.  Her basis for becoming involed in the Foundation was the desire to inspire and offer support and manaaki whānau, tamariki and rangatahi who need it most.

Tracy believes "a hand up and not a hand out" is key to The MOKO Foundation philosophy and being a piece of a larger puzzle that when joined, will create a more resilient and thriving community.
