With 175 local branches, Maori Women’s Welfare League addresses the most pressing problems impacting Māori families and work to restructure federal governance in accordance with treaty promises across New Zealand.
As the only National Maori Women’s organisation, Te Ropu Wahine Maori Toko i te Ora (Maori Women’s Welfare League Inc.) drive outcomes for wahine (women), whanau (families) and tamariki (children). Our Constitution is our guiding document and our objects are the beacons which set the tasks for us to strive and achieve the well-being of wahine Maori and their whanau.
Branches are the foundation of the whole League movement and are formed out of a common purpose or interest. We are community based, essentially voluntary, and respond to the need in our communities.
