Welcome to the Peter McKenzie Project

Imagine an Aotearoa New Zealand where all our children, young people and mokopuna flourish

He oranga tamariki, he oranga whānau, he oranga tāngata


What changes can we make that will enable kiwi families and whānau to flourish?

What can we do to make sure all our children and mokopuna have equal choices and opportunities for their futures?

How do our society’s systems contribute to some of us living in poverty and hardship? How do we improve these systems?

Nau mai, afio mai, welcome to the J R McKenzie Trust’s Peter McKenzie Project

We want to contribute to this kaupapa and see a reduction in the number of children, whānau and families living in poverty.  We need your Big Ideas to make this happen.

This is about the long-term – we are prepared to offer funding over a 20-year period so Ideas can be developed, tested and brought to life.

We are particularly interested in improving systems that affect the circumstances in which people live.

We know that many people and organisations are passionate about making our country a better place for all our children and mokopuna.

We want to help you bring your Idea to life!
