Who We Are


A Girl Called Hope is a non–profit organisation working with young women who face life–controlling issues and behaviour, such as anxiety, depression, disordered eating, self harm, suicidal ideation 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, emotional and psychological issues consuming the young women that seek our help.

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.


Anxiety, depression, disordered eating, self-harm and suicide rates in New Zealand are high and unacceptable.  A Girl Called Hope provides real alternatives to this by working with those seeking help with their mental health and wellbeing.
