Marina Kawe-Peautolu


Born and raised in Tauranga Moana, Marina is a descendant of the local Ngāti Ranginui and Ngai Te Rangi iwi.

Married with 2 teenage sons, she is the Business Group Manager for Education at Ngāti Ranginui Incorporated Society, and she is heavily involved in marae and iwi gatherings, events and hui.  

Marina is passionate about transformational community development; she believes that when true collaboration is embraced and fostered, there can be a significant change to social injustice for the empowerment and benefit of people.  She views her involvement in the Acorn Foundation as an opportunity for collaboration with an organisation that supports others who have a direct impact in and on our whānau community.
