BANZI was established as a non-profitable voluntary community organization with a vision of uniting the community for peace, progress and development within the greater multi-cultural, multi-ethnicity-rich peace- loving New Zealand society.
The mission of the Bangladesh Association New Zealand Incorporated (BANZI) is to maintain and uphold the cultural heritage of Bangladesh among the greater New Zealand society, while providing welfare, social, cultural, economic, and other services to the Bangladeshi community in New Zealand. The organization aims to assist immigrants and newcomers in settling in New Zealand, and to promote the integration of Bangladeshis into the New Zealand way of life.
The vision of BANZI is to support and contribute to the progress and development of the economic and social wealth of New Zealand, while also preserving and celebrating the history and heritage of Bangladesh. This includes recognizing the sacrifices made for the country's independence in 1971 and the movements against Pakistan for the preservation of Bangla language, culture, and Bengali heritage. The organization also aims to create awareness and community development through various events, publications, relief and welfare programs, trade and business support, volunteer and philanthropic activities, and supporting other ethnic and multicultural societies.
