Shakti 20th Anniversary Gala celebration

August 05, 2015 at 6:19 PM

On behalf of Shakti Community Council Inc. and our member organisations we would like to invite you to our 20th Anniversary Gala celebration.

Date and Time: Thursday 20th August, 12pm – 5pm. 

Place: Mt Eden War Memorial Hall, 487 Dominion Rd, Balmoral

See the attached flyer here

For the past 20 years, Shakti Community Council has been the national ethnic-specialist organisation providing leading work around safety of women and children, domestic violence intervention services and community prevention initiatives in Asian, African and Middle Eastern communities in New Zealand.  From the modest start in Auckland in 1995, Shakti has now established 7 organisations (including 5 refuges and 9 other centres) throughout New Zealand.  In 2011, spurred by requests and demands for our culturally specialist services in Australia, Shakti took a leap across the Tasman, and set up service centres in Melbourne and Sydney. Most recently, we launched the first multi-lingual and ethnically-specialist toll-free crisis line in Australia.

Across the other side of the globe, a seeding project has begun in Bangladesh. A group of local women as well as women from the Bangladeshi community in New Zealand is working together to establish a support group in Dhaka.

We are confident that we will be able to follow the same successful trajectory in Australia and the rest of the world, leading to better safety outcomes for women and children from Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Therefore the time has come for us to celebrate a major milestone - our total of 20 years of having serviced vulnerable migrant and refugee ethnic communities in New Zealand and Australia. It is also time to celebrate the freedom and empowerment women and children have gained through Shakti’s support; to celebrate the social impact that we have made as an ethnic organisation as well as inter-generational social change. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please RSVP to, or call 09) 835 9510 by 14th of August.
