E rere kau mai te awa nui, mai i te kahui maunga ki Tangaroa.
Ko au te awa, ko te awa ko au

The “Nga Hononga Marae (Charitable) Trust” has been formed to act as a vehicle for committed, like-minded hapu/ whanau groups and/ or individuals to develop sustainable and viable community initiatives.
The concept has initially been driven by a group of Whanganui Awa marae representatives seeking a model to co-ordinate strategic, innovative and growth potential.
This Trust is designed to consider self sustaining projects that will provide employment opportunities which will in turn enable transformational change. It is envisaged that these initiatives will be the catalyst to retain those presently residing at home and into the near future encourage whanau back to the Awa or their respective marae to live, thus injecting new life, hope and opportunity.
