In each location, HOST International seeks to have impact on three levels: Individual, community and global.

HOST NZ has a focus on building a positive understanding of migrants in NZ and promoting harmony with established communities. We also honour the treaty with the Maori community by engaging them in the design and implementation of programs to support newcomers to NZ.
