About Us

Our Story

At the heart of this ground-breaking project is the visionary founder, Chloe Wright ONZM. As the CEO of the Wright Family Foundation, Birthing Centre and Mothers Matter, Chloe’s passion was for improving the well being of women and their whanau. An optimist, activist, and humanitarian, dedicated her life to giving a 'hand up' to those who struggle in their quest for identity and purpose. 'The Village' stands as a testament to her passion and unwavering commitment. 

While Chloe may no longer be with us, her legacy lives on through the tight-knit, multifaceted team she brought together. As a small group of passionate women united by our shared mission, we are committed to carrying out Chloe's work and ensuring that her vision thrives. The Wright Family Foundation is proud to wholly fund this project, making it accessible to all as we continue the meaningful work Chloe started.

In remembrance, we remain dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by whanau in New Zealand, forging ahead with the mission she so passionately championed. The Village stands as a living tribute to Chloe's extraordinary life and the positive impact she had on the lives of many.


Our Why




We believe that children thrive when they are nurtured and well-cared for.


We believe that parents need nurturing and support too, so they can best care for their children.


We believe that communities thrive when people come together to take care of each other.


At The Village, we recognise the critical role of community in promoting social well being and psychological health. Research shows that lack of community and social support can take a toll on mental health and overall well being, leading to decreased engagement and participation. That is why we believe in the power of genuine intergenerational relationships and providing meaningful resources and support. We're dedicated to creating a place where people effortlessly connect with each other. We believe that every parent deserves the support they need to raise healthy and happy children. By creating an accessible and empowering community, we hope to make this a reality for parents everywhere.
