“Nau Mai – Haere Mai – Piki Mai – Kake Mai Ki Maraeroa Marae – Ukaipo Hiato – Nga Hau e Wha”
Maraeroa Marae Association Incorporated is a community organisation, focused on the concept of Nga Hau e Wha (The Four Winds), that provides facilities and services to all people, regardless of colour, race or creed, whilst remaining an advocate of, and for Maori. In adhering to the Nga Hau e Wha kaupapa, Maraeroa recognizes the diversity of cultures (and people) within its community and their respective needs. They have undertaken the responsibility, as a community provider, to assist the various community sectors and members in accommodating these needs.
The Association has grown from humble beginnings and with today's economic climate, Maraeroa has recognised that for further growth it needs to operate in a business like manner but not to the extent where it severely compromises their values and more importantly their tikanga.
Our kaupapa is health promotion. To achieve this, our aim is to support, educate, empower and value the well being of nga hau e wha.
