About A Girl called Hope

"A Girl Called Hope is a non–profit organisation working with young women who face life–controlling issues, such as abuse, addictions, depression, eating disorders, self-harm and unplanned pregnancy. We exist to provide a future full of hope and potential to every young woman – to show them that they are valued, purposed and above all have a reason to live.

The approach used by A Girl Called Hope is a structured six-month residential programme provided free of charge for young women aged 16 to 28 years. The programme is designed to equip them with life principles, social skills, training in nutrition and fitness, career guidance and counselling. The practical and holistic approach draws on Christian principles in working with the physical, spiritual and emotional issues consuming the young women that seek our help.

As well as the residential programme A Girl Called Hope present seminars in the community in order to equip others to help those in their world struggling with the issues we deal with. Our goal is to see young women restored to full health; to discover the purpose for their lives and bring value to their world as productive and thriving individuals."

About CAP

Christians Against Poverty is a debt counselling charity which offers a free, holistic and in-depth service to those who are struggling with unmanageable debt in New Zealand. CAP works with a growing network of church based centres throughout New Zealand in order to release communities from the cycle of debt and poverty.

CAP aims to have a debt counselling centre in every major town and city in New Zealand by 2015, enabling churches to help hundreds of families in local communities around the nation.

We can often think that people are irresponsible for getting themselves into debt with out-of-control spending habits.  Yet debt can happen to anyone.  All it takes is a change in circumstances such as illness, marriage breakdown or losing a job to turn manageable spending and loan repayments into a financial crisis.

CAP does not pay people’s debts for them or encourage clients to take out more debt. CAP aims to show love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help.

There are two primary ways in which CAP does this:

• Free debt counselling for those struggling with unmanageable debt.

• CAP Money courses which provide money management and budgeting education.
