ZANZ was established in 1996 with the main objectives:
- to preserve the cultural identity of Zoroastrians in the multi-cultural society of New Zealand,
- to preserve and advance the tenets of the Zoroastrian religion amongst the members of the association and the Zoroastrian community in New Zealand and
- to make a cultural contribution to the New Zealand society.
Over the years, ZANZ has facilitated the integration of newly arrived Zoroastrians into the Zoroastrian community as well as into New Zealand society. The Zoroastrian community has grown rapidly in the past decade and we aim to reach out to the wider community of New Zealand and its leadership in order to firmly establish the important role and contributions of Zoroastrians in New Zealand.
We also intend to develop cooperation, cordial relations and mutual understanding between the people of New Zealand and the Zoroastrian community and to take all the steps considered necessary or expedient to facilitate such cooperation, relations and mutual understanding. We will do our best to contribute to the promotion and advancement of the interests and welfare of New Zealand.
