Hangaia te tirohanga whakamua a te matauranga, hautūtanga, tikangā me te whānau

Building futures through knowledge, leadership, tikangā and whānau

Ngā Kākano Foundation is a mana whenua owned and operated organisation established in 1986 by our kuia Piatarihi Kihirini (Tapuika, Tūhourangi, Ngā Pōtiki, Ngāti Pūkenga) focused on empowering rangatahi through the teaching of traditional tribal history, the pursuit of knowledge and excellence.

Over the years Ngā Kākano Foundation has been privileged to have at its helm strong visionary leaders supported by wahine toa passionate about growing better futures for our tamariki, rangatahi, whānau.

Since then Ngā Kākano Foundation has expanded, providing health and social services to whānau/families living in the Te Puke District. Today Ngā Kākano Foundation provides a comprehensive range of community based health services including GP Practice, Asthma, Diabetes Education and Case Management, Wellchild/Tamariki Ora, Mental Health & Addictions services, Koeke Programme and Whānau Ora.

As Ngā Kākano Foundation evolves the core values of who we are will continue to guide us into the future.

E kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Rangiātea
I will not be lost, I am a seed descended from Rangiātea
