The Peace Foundation is the operating name of the Foundation for Peace Studies Aotearoa/New Zealand Inc. - Te Tuapapa Rongomau o Aotearoa. The Peace Foundation is a not for profit organisation working to build peaceful relationships among people of all ages and cultures, from personal to global through education, research and action.
We 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.
Joan Macdonald : a previous president of the Peace Foundation and tireless peace and social justice campaigner in New Zealand, Asia/Pacific and globally, died in Auckland, 12 August 2016 aged 83 years.
