Wellbeing for our communities and restoration of the earth


Welcome to Te Waipuna Puawai, a thriving community development initiative, based in the heart of the Tamaki community, Auckland.

Together with the Sisters of Mercy and our community members, we build pathways of success and positive change for our whānau, embracing a collaborative, holistic, family and community-based approach.

“Working together to strengthen women, strengthen families and strengthen community”

Our work in the Tamaki community


Through education and self-development programmes and family support services, we play an active role in the community, fostering well-being for people, families and the community as a whole.
