About Us

This orga­ni­za­tion was founded in 2002 by Mr. Mor­ganan, who is a mem­ber of Hindu Her­itage Research Foun­da­tion (India and Fiji). The orga­ni­za­tion in Fiji hosted Pujya Sant Shree Ramesh Bhai Oza and also Pujya Sant Shree Chi­danand Saraswati ji (Author of Ency­clo­pe­dia of Hin­duism). Mor­ganan migrated to New Zealand in Decem­ber, 2001 and estab­lished Hindu Her­itage Research Foun­da­tion (NZ). Since then the orga­ni­za­tion started to develop. This is a non prof­itable orga­ni­za­tion and is giv­ing the ser­vices to the com­mu­ni­ties of New Zealand. It started with five mem­bers and today it has got more than 500 mem­bers. The orga­ni­za­tion today has seven orga­ni­za­tions run­ning under the umbrella of Hindu Her­itage Research Foun­da­tion NZ. The asso­ci­ated orga­ni­za­tions are:

  1. Pap­a­toe­toe Com­mu­nity Bud­get­ing & Fam­ily Services.
  2. Swar Jhankar Sangeet Vidhayalay.
  3. Shiv Shakti Moth­ers Club.
  4. Shiv Onkaar Ramayan Sansthaa.
  5. Pap­a­toe­toe Senior Cit­i­zens (Fiji Indians).

The orga­ni­za­tion has its own solic­i­tors – Dou­glas Hall & Asso­ciate and Richard Pidgeon of Pidgeon Law , an accountant- A.K.

It is also registered with The Charities Commission and also with the Inland Revenue Department. The future plans of HHRF NZ is to patches a land and build a community hall together with a library for most of the lan­guages spo­ken by the Indian descent. The hall will be in memory of the Gir­mi­tiyas. Soon the Budget service will be renamed as Pap­a­toe­toe Bud­get­ing and Fam­ily services whereby this will be serving other needs of families in South Auckland.
