About Us Gratitude

Left Jamie Ferguson, Liz Ferris (Centre manager & Child facility partner at Te Papapa Preschool) Arunima Dhingra and Johana Te Momo founders of Gratitude NZ


Founders Arunima Dhingra and Johana Te Momo come from very different backgrounds and make the perfect team. Arunima, Founder & CEO of Aims Global Immigration & Education Services, is a successful entrepreneur and mother managing many portfolios.

Johana Te Momo, a strong Waikato Tainui woman, also a mother; started the Christmas Present Drop initiative in Otara, Auckland in 2017, with strong support from the community.

Although different, both have a heart for people especially children in struggling environments. In May 2019, they both joined forces and their strengths to form Gratitude New Zealand Charitable Trust Board - a mission to empower the next generation and break the cycle of poverty for our children in New Zealand.
