About Immigrant Journeys

In the words of a famous Japanese poet says "Each day is a journey, and the journey itself is home. - Matsuo Basho"

Aotearoa is an immigrant nation – from the first peoples to colonial settlement, we have crossed the oceans to call this place home. Immigrant Journeys reveals the rich diversity that our most recent immigrants bring to Aotearoa New Zealand. Through their different skills, cultural backgrounds, and experiences they strengthen and add immense value this country.

Immigrant Journeys is an original idea of the Lady Khadija Charitable Trust whose creation has been made possible by the efforts of Telling Lives and Janneth Gil Photography.

The project has been funded by the Ministry of Ethnic Communities and Rāta Foundation.
