Mana Tangata People of Action
Rotary Clubs in NZ & the Pacific
Rotary’s 100 years in New Zealand and 85 years in the Pacific are characterised by a remarkable record of endeavour and service. Since the first New Zealand clubs were founded in Auckland and Wellington, Rotarians have been people of action — enriching and enhancing communities through their commitment to serving others.
This richly illustrated and lively history shares the story of Rotary’s prolific first century in New Zealand and the Pacific and looks towards the future and a continuing drive to bring about lasting change. An expansive and engaging read, Mana Tangata People of Action shines a light on an iconic but perhaps overlooked champion of service above self.
‘Mana Tangata: People of Action highlights the changing social needs of
New Zealand over the past century and shows how Rotary responded impressively with imagination and hard work.’ — Jock Phillips, historian
