ABOUT US

How it all began....

How did ‘the Tribe’ become NZ’s largest, women-only, ‘Friendship Community?

“IT’S HARD MAKING NEW FRIENDS AS AN ADULT -THE TRIBE CHANGES THAT.”

Sarah Clarke - Tribe Founder

ABOUT US

THE TRIBE WAS  CREATED 8 YEARS AGO AS THE SOCIAL SOLUTION FOR ALL NZ WOMAN

All ages, all stages -

But why?

The Tribe began when Tribe Founder, Sarah Clarke, moved to Auckland for a wonderful new start. It was meant to be a sparkly city, full of bright lights, fun outings, and wonderful new friends to meet. Instead, it was the loneliest time of her life.
 

Because, for anyone who has ever moved somewhere new, the question is: where to start on the 'new friends-front', right?
 

Friday night rolls round, now what? Saturday morning dawns bright and new. Now what? Because sure, you can get out there, go for walks, & check things out, but without actually knowing people, you don't get any invites. So, aside from heading along to the movies on your own, there isn't a whole lot of social opportunities for a solo woman—let alone, meeting new women often enough for new friendships to grow.
 

Plus, it wasn't just her! As a private therapist, she was seeing women day-in, day-out. And guess what? They didn't have friends either. And we're not talking 'Nelly-No-Mates' sorta women here! Rather, fabulous women with awesome careers but, you guessed it, no friends. So now what?
 

Resolving to fix this apparent loneliness epidemic, she gave up her day job, and the Tribe began. What initially started as a cutesy little Meetup group has grown to become the nation's largest women's friendship community. Jam-packed full of Kiwi gals of all ages and all stages, with one thing in common: they're wanting to hang out, try new things, and make some lovely new friends in the process.

HOW THE TRIBE WORKS

With 30,000 Tribe gals nationwide, you'll find your tribe by getting out there and meeting them!

You've seen that group of girlfriends, sitting at a cafe and laughing happily amongst themselves? Or, a pair of besties solving their life's problems over a vino on the balcony? That will soon be you!

Instead of you sitting at home; miserably scrolling your newsfeed, you can find your tribe by joining the Tribe Community! 

Jam packed full of local gals; you'll read everyone's introduction posts, arrange meetups, or exchange private messages. Best of all, you'll be meeting-up. Choose from a variety of fun, friendly, Friendship Events that are designed to be attended solo. 

Yes, life is hard. But it's harder still without a tribe of women at your back. In fact, science tells us that loneliness is a hard on your body as smoking a packet of cigarettes a day! So, save your health, and avoid yet another boring night at home, while meeting new people and having more fun!

NEW FRIENDS

Hi, I'm Sarah...

Tribe Founder

Sarah Clarke - Tribe Founder, Find Your Tribe

I've created the Tribe as the meeting place for NZ women, a safe space - exclusively for us.

What NZ women need in these busy, trying times, is each other. Unfortunately, we're so busy running here, there, and everywhere, we don't have the opportunity to meet new people. The Tribe changes that.

As a psychology trainer, I'm passionate about the empowerment of women. So, instead of you sitting at home and wishing you had people to hang out with, you can choose from various friendship events hosted by Tribe members, for Tribe members. You'll suddenly have a social calendar you're excited about, and a ready-made tribe of new girlfriends to meet. 

Are you nervous heading along to Tribe Events on your own? Don't be.  Tribe Events are designed to be attended solo because everyone you meet, at every Tribe event, is there to meet new people too.

Plus, as a Tribe member, you'll have access to various online communities. There, you'll stop with the doom scrolling and instead, connect with other local women. You can select from communities of women in your ideal friends age- range, who live nearby, or who share your interests.

As a Tribe Member you will find your tribe, find your people and have more fun!

Friendship is every womans superpower
