MANA supports Pasifika Peoples to thrive

Our Mission is to create spaces, strategies and solutions that empower Pasifika peoples to continue the extraordinary legacy of our ancestors in Australia.


We are a community development non-profit organisation: we can assist governments, organisations and businesses to work effectively with Pasifika peoples and communities in Australia and across the region.

Our aim is to embrace the remarkable knowledge, science and technology of today to advance the legacies of our ancestors of yesterday. We are located in a solutions-hub in Logan City with like-minded companies, and run programs nationwide. Our practice is evidence-based, contextual, collaborative and evaluated and founded upon the values of respect, courage and trust.
