The 'Hope Project' is a media initiative that explores what ‘hope’ means to a broad range of New Zealanders, with a view to helping make New Zealand a more hope-filled place.
Over the past 7 years, we’ve received strong feedback highlighting the fact that our ‘history’ and ‘cultural-roots’ contribute much to our hopefulness. Our past undoubtedly teaches us about who we are today… but also provides insights for our future.
Our Kiwi heritage - whether from European or Maori descent, includes strong Christian roots. So, it’s only right to acknowledge this - which is partly why we do what we do.
It's our hope that you'll explore all that's presented on this site… share it, and talk about it with others. And as we say in our welcome video… consider 'hope' as a fuel for life - it really is!
As a key part of our heritage, we reminded Kiwis about the essential meaning of Easter in a poem that's broadcast on national television… to the consistent acclaim of many communities. Plus we recounted the background to this remarkable event. You can visit the related web-page HERE.
