PROJECT RESTORE NZ’s Picture of a possible future
New Zealand is known for its non-violent stance – we are free from cycles of sexual violence.

We restore a sense of humanity, justice and dignity, when sexual harm has occurred.  We believe that the experience of restorative interaction has the power to model compassionate behaviour which breaks wider cycles of sexual harm, hurt and violence now and for future generations.
