Manawatu Newcomers Network

Manawatu Newcomers Network is a non profit organization run by unpaid volunteers and coming under the umbrella of the Manawatu Multicultural Council Inc. Most of the volunteers have at some point been new to the Manawatu region so they understand the difficulties faced when moving to Manawatu.
