To Tatou Kaupapa – Our Purpose

Te Rōpū Kaitiaki o Erama Raihi – Edmund Rice Justice Trust
Aotearoa New Zealand

Our Purpose
“Inspired by the story of Edmund Rice and committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi,
Te Rōpū Kaitiaki o Erama Raihi- Edmund Rice Justice Aotearoa New Zealand Trust
engages in a range of initiatives and programmes
focused on current ethical and justice concerns.
The Trust is committed to the restoring and building of right relationships
and enabling opportunities for community and cross-cultural engagement.”

How we do this

  • Facilitating projects that will work with individuals and families in the community who the Trust identify as being on the margins of society, by assisting those individuals and families in a supportive and advocacy role.
  • Providing education and resources regarding social issues that impact on Aotearoa New Zealand and international communities.
  • Providing seminars that are open to the community. The purpose of these seminars is to promote greater understanding of the social issues that impact our communities and to assist the community in the identification of ways to address these issues.
  • Undertaking research into social issues and utilise that research to facilitate community education. This research may also be provided to other organisations and government departments that would benefit from the research undertaken by the Trust.

Our Desire
An inclusive and equitable bi-cultural Aotearoa New Zealand.
