We invite you to join us in beautiful Aotearoa, New Zealand for a unique HOPEww Volunteer Corps experience in December 2018.
New Zealand is a modern first-world English speaking country with a deep foundation on the traditional Maori culture, and a rich relationship to our unspoiled natural beauty. The HOPEww Volunteer Corps program will be based in Auckland, the largest city, which has a multi-cultural population, a growing, cosmopolitan outlook, and a mild climate suited to being outdoors.
Despite (or maybe because of) New Zealand’s many advantages there are also many problems. A growing population as a result of immigration has put pressure on housing, pushing up the cost of living, and leading to homelessness. With poverty comes a range of other problems including poor health, drugs and addiction, crime, family violence, and suicide. The love of Christ is needed here as much as anywhere else.
