Norm HewittWe are delighted to announce that  Norm Hewitt, former All Black is joining the Peace Foundation as an Ambassador.
Norm’s journey, to use a sporting metaphor, has definitely been a game of two halves. The first half dominated by the ‘school of hard knocks’ with physical abuse and bullying suffered and then dished out. The second half about restoration and forgiveness for himself and others.
