TROW Group has supported the Manaaki Tangata Programme since 2016. Based at Te Puea Marae at Mangere Bridge, the programme was established in direct response to the rising number of people facing homelessness.
How it works: Manaaki Tangata works with whanau to help address immediate issues such as food and shelter, while providing ongoing support to provide long-term employment, mental health, and drug and alcohol addiction services.
What it has achieved: The programme has supported 460 families to move into homes and enabled approximately 25% of adults into employment.
What we did: TROW Group had the privilege of supporting this programme by donating upcycled kitchenware, furniture and desks and chairs.
