Shakti Community Council Inc., formerly known as the Shakti Migrant Services Trust has its origins in The Shakti Asian Women’s Support Group founded by Farida Sultana and 7 other ethnic women in Auckland in 1995.  The support group was set up by ethnic women for ethnic women to overcome the barriers that come with migration and the intergenerational bonds of cultural oppression.


Besides enrolling themselves in Life Skills programmes and learning to become self-reliant, these women sought to challenge the cultural acceptance of Domestic Violence within their communities, promote greater gender equity and bring about social change.

The pre-requisite for a man’s change is accepting there is a problem and a willingness to allow others to help. 


Man Kind can put tools into the hands of men, but they are responsible for picking up those tools and using them.


Our Goal can only be encouragement and empowerment in a journey towards self and whānau well-being.
