KOROWAITIA TE PUNA WAIORA, HEI ORANGA MOTUHAKE MŌ TE IWI
Kei te kotahitanga o ngā kūmete nō uta, nō tai te oranga o te iwi
We are working for a common cause to effect positive change for the whānau we serve.
Nō te whānau, mō te whānau
We acknowledge whānau are the experts in their own lives.
Kia mau, kia ū ki ngā kete mātauranga nō ngā tūpuna
Our delivery and commitment to whānau, each other, and our partners is underpinned by Mātauranga and Kaupapa-Māori.
Whaia te ara tika ahakoa te aha
Whānau ability to attain wellbeing is a fundamental right.
KO WAI MATOU
Te Oranganui is an iwi governed organisation that was established in 1993 to improve access and service delivery of health services to Māori in the Whanganui Region.
Over time the roles and functions of the organisation have grown and the organisation now delivers a wide range of health and social services to all people throughout the Whanganui and neighboring regions.
Investing in transformational wellbeing where whānau are at the centre of everything we do.
To be an innovative and contemporary whānau ora organisation with, and for, whānau.
Te Oranganui Trust Inc. was formed in 1993 after the need for a health organisation “for Māori by Māori” was identified. The Tauihu was constituted in 1993 with the original make up of members consisting of one member from each of the following tribal groups, hapū or body:
Ngā Rauru Kītahi
Ngā Wairiki – Ngāti Apa
Whanganui River Māori Trust Board
Whanganui Regional Development Board Trust
Two Tauihu appointed co-opted members

Moko Waiora | Enduring Legacy
Honours the original Te Oranganui tohu whilst recognising a new chapter that acknowledges the evolution of Te Oranganui, evidenced by whānau transformation for the past 27 years.
Moko Waiora or ‘Enduring Legacy’ professes that we are striving for more than hauora, we are striving for waiora; when everything in our body flows like wai, and our four dimensions of wellness never diminish.
Comes from Rūaumoko from that we have “moko” (female essence imprint) Mokopuna (creates legacy) it is the im- print from a source of legacy and this is forever present.
The essence of waiora is represented in the white line that runs through the middle of the design
The four koru within the moko represent a journey from past into the future, like that of Te Oranganui, moving through the first 26 years, and now at a point where the kaupapa has been sustained for this long and it is now time to move into the future and create an enduring legacy for our people.
