Joining People Together in New Zealand
Garreth Ferry, a social worker for Splice, an organization whose name derives from “joining ropes together”, and which is committed to bringing people together. In this respect, Splice strives to engage with a broad range of communities, from the poorest to the richest of society, ensuring everyone is treated the same. Despite having a Christian background, the organization does not talk about religion in its work, yet about the universal values that are shared by all faiths such as brotherhood, peace, and tolerance.
