Adele Keefe

Kaitiaki ō Mana Whānau
I am a survivor of domestic violence and sexual abuse who has overcome and been strengthened from the journey. I have the heart and the passion to encourage and support Wāhine to heal, grow and transform into the Mana Wāhine they were always created to be.

As the saying goes
"It takes a village to raise a child"
So it takes a Tribe of Mana Wāhine to build another!
