Who are we?
WHĀNGAIHIA KIA TIPU, KIA PUĀWAI
That which is nurtured, blossoms and grows
Our approach is guided by our whakataukī (proverb)
We are an indigenous-owned and operated organisation established in 2017. The word Manawaroa means a long or tall heart. It also means resilience. We chose this kupu | word as the name of our organisation because it reflects one of our primary drivers, which is to support the wellbeing of all Tāngata Tiriti (non-indigenous people of this land) and Tāngata Whenua (indigenous people of this land).
